Carly Fiorina Defined Feminism and It Is Perfect
Republican presidential primary candidate Carly Fiorina suspended her campaign Wednesday. As she did so, she left what is perhaps the best definition of feminism from a conservative point of view that I have ever seen on Facebook. Here is what she said:
"To young girls and women across the country, I say: do not let others define you. Do not listen to anyone who says you have to vote a certain way or for a certain candidate because you’re a woman. That is not feminism. Feminism doesn’t shut down conversations or threaten women. It is not about ideology. It is not a weapon to wield against your political opponent. A feminist is a woman who lives the life she chooses and uses all her God-given gifts. And always remember that a leader is not born, but made. Choose leadership."
It doesn't get much better than that.
Fiorina provided a much needed female voice to the debates. She provided the strongest voice in opposition to the Hillary Clinton candidacy. She was fierce. And the Democrats hate her. She is everything that Hillary Clinton is not.
All conservatives should thank Carly Fiorina for her contribution to the primary. Republican women are natural leaders and a greatly underused resource. Let's hope that changes soon. One candidate at a time.
