  • There was no war against women here. “This is like heaven on women,” said TIME writer Katy Steinmetz.  (TIME Newsfeed)
  • “…the YG Network founded and run by former Eric Cantor advisers, is putting together a cool “Woman Up Pavilion” in the Channelside area near the Tampa Bay Times Forum … YG has 14,000 square feet in a former Chamber of Commerce space … will feature lectures and panel discussions, a coffee shop, vendors, and a women’s suffrage museum.” (Tampa Bay Times)
  • “Its décor is welcoming…. The pavilion has a one-room women’s suffrage museum, and forums on topics like “Advocacy Means Business: Building Your Organization” and “The Europeanization of the United States.”  “We don’t talk social issues,” said Mary Ann Carter, policy director for the Young Guns Network, who manages the pavilion, as several young women from the convention milled about sipping coffee and shopping for souvenirs. “We talk about the economy. We talk about health care. We talk about energy.” (New York Times)
  • “…the pavilion is a posh, super PAC-connected policy spa for GOP women, where they can listen to a female-led panel discussion on defense cuts—or get eyelash extensions for $40.” (Wall Street Journal)
  • We can’t thank you and the whole team enough for being so extraordinarily generous with us.  You were wonderful, the space was wonderful, and we had a wonderful event because of you.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!  (Grace Marie Turner, President, Galen Institute)
  • I passed the MSNBC stage, leaned to the right, and found myself at the Women’s Pavilion. It is open to the public and is truly one of the coolest places to chill out during the convention…even for guys! (Tampalanta Blog)
  • “The pavilion also hosts discussions on Supreme Court rulings, small-businesses opportunities for women and foreign policy.” (New York Post)
  • “The real war on women is the economy,” said YG policy director Mary Anne Carter. (New York Post)
