Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse is the founder of the Ruth Institute, a global non-profit organization focused on creating a Christ-like solution to the agony and injustice of family breakdown.
She has authored or co-authored four books and spoken around the globe regarding her theories on marriage, family, and sexuality from a social and economic standpoint. She has engaged in debates and discussions with lawyers, professors, church prelates, elected officials, and policy
makers on the issues of natural marriage, humane feminism, and "demographic winter".
Dr. Morse was a campaign spokeswoman for California’s winning Proposition 8 campaign, defining marriage as the union of a man and a woman. Her work has been translated into Spanish, Chinese, Korean Polish and Chuukese (the native language of the Micronesian Islands).
Dr. Morse earned her Ph.D. in economics at the University of Rochester in 1980. She taught
economics at Yale University and George Mason University. She has served as a Research Fellow for the Acton Institute for the Study of Religion and Liberty and has held fellowships at

Sue Ellen Browder
Sue Ellen Browder is a freelance writer who has appeared on Oprah, The Today Show, and hundreds of radio talk shows. Her work for Cosmopolitan, New Woman, Woman’s Day, and other magazines provided her a front line view of the women’s movement as it unfolded in the media, both on the public stage and behind the scenes. Her conversion story from "Cosmo Girl" to Catholic mom and evangelizer is eye-opening. Browder was an eyewitness to how the women's movement went from admirable goals of economic and social justice for women to ones of selfishness, unfettered moral license, and attacking traditional values.
