Principles and aims
Endeavour Forum aims to enhance the status of uniquely female roles - we affirm that men and women are equal but different, not equal and the same.
We support the right to life of all human beings from conception to natural death. Our aim is a society in which married women with children can work or not work in paid employment as they choose. We can only do this by educating the public and the parliamentary representatives of the situation facing families today.
To receive the Endeavour Forum quarterly Newsletter, please email Babette Francis: email@example.com
The main function of our quarterly newsletters is to provide a critique of feminism. We are realists not feminists. Our quarterly newsletters deal with current issues concerning feminism, abortion, child care, equal opportunity, affirmative action, euthanasia, sex differences, and pro-life and pro-family topics.
We believe our Newsletter and information is a valuable resource. There are other resources and information that we can provide on request. Information on abortion can be viewed at http://www.conservapedia.com/Abortion
SUMMARY REPORT of our CSW65 Virtual Sessions March 15th to 26th 2021
By Denise Mountenay
Priority Theme-"Women's full and effective participation and decision-making in public life, as well as the elimination of violence, for achieving gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls".
Due to the fear of Covid, all of the side events and parallel events were done virtually this year. I was able to gather 24 women to join me for the Commission on the Status of Women Sessions this year. About 16 were first timers, and about 12 of us were actively making interventions with our focus on real gender equality must begin in the womb, and the elimination of violence on women and children before birth.
The UN began as nations gathered after the Nazi Holocaust to condemn the atrocities committed by Nazis, to kill millions of "unwanted" Jews and others. Tragically, today the UN has been hi-jacked by population controllers and feminists who want to push the abortion agenda; to kill the "unwanted" children before birth.
I organized two orientation and training zoom sessions before the CSW65 began, to familiarize the participants with some of the UN Language. I gave them a list of talking points, protocols and basic information. As well, we made sure everyone was registered under the INDICO and parallel events. It was so exciting that a Member of Parliament, for Canada, Mrs. Cathay Wagantall, had agreed to give an Oral Statement to UN Women on behalf of Endeavour Forum Inc. as she was presenting a Private Members Bill regarding the elimination of sex-selected abortions across Canada. I submitted the application to UN Women, and not surprisingly, they rejected her as a presenter.
There were hundreds of Parallel Events, a cash cow for organizers, and dozens of Side Events, more than usual. The majority of events were to push the abortion rights and LGBT agendas.
We were only able to communicate to other participants and panels through the CHAT box on the sideline of the zoom calls.
At the end of each week, I had debriefing zoom calls to hear reports and answer questions. Our team was awesome. While the rhetoric and aim of the extremists feminists at CSW is to push the Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) abortion rights and LGBT mantras, nine of us former abortion patients had the opportunity to share our testimonies on the damage of legal abortion, and how it took the lives of our children. We always tied our comments into the subject at hand, and were respectful, and were encouraged to use our voices, and make it personal in the CSW orientation. We were also were able to make comments on the humanity of the girl child before birth, the miracle of fetal development and how legal abortion can be harmful to women's mental and reproductive health. I stressed that legal abortion is the greatest human rights violation in history and that sex-selected abortions are the epitome of gender violence whereas girls are exterminated before birth, just because they are a girl.
We were also able to use the UN language quoting the Convention on the rights of the child, the universal declaration of human rights and even the Beijing Declaration and platform for action Section 106, part h, and Paragraph 115 which states; Acts of violence against women also include forced sterilizations, forced abortions, coercive/forced use of contraceptives, female infanticide and prenatal sex selection … and every attempt should be made to eliminate the need for abortion.
The opposition were not happy with our comments and by March 24th 3 of us were removed from the parallel events virtually. However, I did send in a complaint as they claimed we were disrupting the event, however we were only making relevant comments in the side Chat boxes, so how could we be disrupting the panel? The good news is that we were able to sow many seeds of truth, in love in many of the events.
One lady from South Korea contacted me, who was in one of the events virtually with me, noted my Sidebar chat comments and I was also given permission to say a few words online in that session. She is with the International Women's Peace Group (IWPG) and she said she truly enjoyed what I said, and would love to collaborate more with us. They have 69 global branches, and believes we are like-minded in our efforts.
Furthermore, some of the other ladies on our team also had great opportunities to share their testimonies and bring salt and light into the UN events for such a time as this.
I also encouraged participants to share the www.familywatch.org website as they have great videos and resources against CSE, and the war against the family.
Thank you for this opportunity, and it is an honour to serve you at the United Nations as Chief Administrative Officer.
My Odd-Given Right to be Mrs Thatcher
Babette Francis - Quadrant Online, March 10th, 2017https://quadrant.org.au/opinion/qed/2017/03/odd-given-right-mrs-thatcher
Bruce Jenner declared himself to be Caitlin and did very nicely in the switch, hailed for "bravery" and dress sense alike while showered with attention and speaker's fees. Forgive me, but that is so unfair! Why will no one accept and endorse my desire to be acknowledged as a deceased British PM?
After a talk I gave to a group of local citizens in Bendigo, a lady commented somewhat wryly: "The United States was the first country to put a man on the moon and Obama is the first US President to put a man in a ladies' bathroom." I was reminded of her comment when I read the latest outburst from the transgendered "Caitlyn" Jenner, nee Bruce Jenner, father of several children and winner of Olympic medals as a male athlete.
I use the word "reality" with some timidity lest I set off a whole new philosophical debate ...
Panic in the Left's Giggle Factory

He isn't making with the gags himself, but Donald Trump is boosting global merriment by inspiring his critics to make monumental jokes of themselves. They simper, they sob, they pack suitcases and, most of all, they sneer non-stop at voters deemed so less intelligent than their precious selves.
If US President-elect Donald Trump achieves nothing during his four years in the White House, he has at least given us days of laughter following his election. In this grim world of ours there is often little to laugh about, so thank you, Mr. President-elect, for the hilarity following your election. Observing the mainstream media scrutinizing the tea leaves (and their own entrails) has been side-splitting.
The Deconstruction of Reality - Safe Schools Coalition Program
by Babette Francis, posted Friday, 26 February 2016 OnLine Opinionhttp://www.onlineopinion.com.au/view.asp?article=18052
Results in education appear somewhat dismal for Australian school students. Learning First, an Australian education research group has reported on data from the OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) which tested the basic skills of half a million 15-year-old students in 65 industrialized countries in 2012.
The data showed that Chinese students were three years head of Australian students in maths, and eighteen months ahead in reading and science. Australian students are also 17 months behind Hong Kong students in maths, 20 months behind students in Singapore, and five months behind students in the Canadian province of British Columbia. No doubt our state and federal governments' education bureaucracies will give these deficiencies in our school systems the attention that is warranted.
But there is a far more serious problem affecting Australian school children, and it has only recently come to light. This is a devastating medical and health problem which requires consideration at the highest level of Government and by our Health and Medical Departments. Apparently a substantial number of Australian school children have no genitals. It is not clear whether these hapless children were born without genitals or had to have them surgically removed for various reasons, but this tragedy requires the most urgent attention, and Australian parents should be most grateful to the Safe Schools Coalition for drawing attention to their plight.
The Deconstruction of Gender
by Babette Francis
A speech delivered on September 13, 2015, at the 44th Eagle Council, the major annual conference of the Eagle Forum, held in St Louis, Missouri.
The title of my paper is "The Deconstruction of Gender", but it is really about the deconstruction of reality and what is bordering on a collective insanity. I say "bordering on insanity", because there is still apparently a line to be crossed. A man is a hero if he calls himself a woman, but if he thinks he is Napoleon he is regarded as crazy; but is it any more likely that Bruce Jenner is a woman than a reincarnated Napoleon? I was born in India where many Hindus believe in reincarnation, so a man, especially one who has fathered several children, is just as likely to be Napoleon as he is to be a woman. And what if a man thinks he is a chicken trapped in a man's body? If a man is called courageous because he says he is a woman, isn't he even more courageous for saying he is a chicken? And how long before we provide him with feather implants, poultry hormones and beak surgery? Let him strut and crow and legally marry hens. Let's open a new frontier not merely in transgender but in trans-species.
Report on World Congress of Families Regional Event
Babette's Feast - behind a steel mesh fence
by Babette Francis, National and Overseas Coordinator of Endeavour Forum Inc.
The heroine of the film "Babette's Feast" had a struggle to bring smiles to the faces of her dour employers and I was determined to do the same for all those who registered for the Melbourne Regional Event of the World Congress of Families, but I hadn't realised the formidable obstacles in my path.
"Cardinal Pell and Islam"
Cardinal Pell's speech to the Legatus Summit, Florida, 4/2/2006 - Cardinal George Pell
(readers might like to access it from our site because it is missing from the News Weekly website apparently because of a "broken link" - Editor)
"Can Islam and the Western democracies live together peacefully? What of Islamic minorities in Western countries? Views on this question range from näive optimism to bleakest pessimism. Those tending to the optimistic side of the scale seize upon the assurance of specialists that jihad is primarily a matter of spiritual striving, and that the extension of this concept to terrorism is a distortion of koranic teaching. On the pessimistic side of the equation, concern begins with the Koran itself. In my own reading of the Koran, I began to note down invocations to violence. There are so many of them, however, that I abandoned this exercise after 50 or 60 or 70 pages. I will return to the problems of Koranic interpretation later in this paper..." Read More
