“Redefining Feminism: The state of women in America, by Carly Fiorina”
“Feminism began as a rallying cry to empower women — to vote, to get an education, to enter the workplace. But over the years, feminism has devolved into a left-leaning political ideology where women are pitted against men and used as a political weapon to win elections. Being empowered means having a voice. But ideological feminism shuts down conversation — on college campuses and in the media. If you are a man — or a woman — who doesn’t believe the litanies of the left, then you are “waging a war on women” or you are a “threat to women’s health” or you are variously described as “window dressing” — Joni Ernst — or offensive as a candidate — Carly Fiorina… Here’s what I told that little boy: A feminist is a woman who lives the life she chooses. We will have arrived when every woman can decide for herself how to best find and use her God-given gifts. A woman may choose to have five children and home-school them. She may choose to become a CEO…or run for President.
I am a conservative because I know we are all equal in the eyes of God — men and women. Our principles work better to lift men and women up so that they can choose their own path and live lives of dignity, purpose and meaning.”
It’s interesting to see feminism being re-branded to expand to more demographics. I think it’s fair that it’s been tied into one political identity in a way that keeps a lot of people out of the movement (although I would phrase it really differently from the way that she does — she’s clearly just ringing existing bells that get peoples’ attention).
Also — all the pictures are of white ladies.
