Destiny Herndon-De La Rosa
She's a mom. She's pro-life. She's a feminist. Oh, and she's a badass. As the founder of the pro-life feminist group New Wave Feminists, Destiny Herndon-De La Rosa is redefining what it means to be a feminist in today's world.
She lives with her husband and four hilarious children in the great state of Texas, and frequently writes for the Dallas Morning News. New Wave Feminists has been featured in the New York Times, on VICE News, HuffPo, The Atlantic, and Slate.
At the core of NWF's mission is the belief that there should be a consistent life ethic that values every life from the moment of conception. This extends under the full pro-life umbrella for NWF, which means the organization is anti-war, anti-death penalty, anti-torture and anti-abortion.

Destiny is a feminist because she believes women deserve equal rights and that for far too long we've been treated as nothing more than property. She doesn't believe any human being should ever be treated as property, which is why she's a pro-life (badass) feminist.

Destiny and her NWF team often protest and participate in national events, drawing attention to the pro-life, pro-woman cause.
In addition to NWF, Destiny is working with a team to launch an app called Help Assist Her, which will provide information for uninsured pregnant women on the locations of maternity homes, pregnancy resource centers and pro-life doctors that can assist them in finding healthcare services that will encourage them to choose life.
Follow NWF on social media to be informed when the app officially launches.
