In March 2009 Sarah Renee founded The International Society of Women in Apologetics (ISWA). With the help of volunteers, Sarah created and opened womeninapologetics.com as a content sharing site with the hope that it would encourage and equip women to defend their Christian faith. ISWA was dissolved as a 501(c)(3) in the state of California in 2016.
On May 1, 2017, Jade Turner and Rachel Shockey took over the website and founded the organization, Women in Apologetics (WIA). The vision God has given us at WIA is to further engage, inspire, and equip Christian females to develop an evidential faith. Thus, our three main goals are 1) to have an annual WIA conference, 2) to provide academic apologetics support to females of all ages, and 3) to provide apologetics training for women. WIA’s 501(c)(3) status is currently pending.
