Women in Apologetics began in March 2009 as the International Society of Women in Apologetics (ISWA), founded by Sarah Renee. Sarah, with the help of other volunteers, started womeninapologetics.com as a content sharing site with the hope that it would encourage and equip other women to defend their Christian faith.
On May 1, 2017, Jade Turner and Rachel Shockey took the reigns and renamed 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.
