Who are your strong female role models?

    Who are your strong female role models?

    One of the reason Hillary Clinton was popular with her supporters was because she was a strong woman who enabled women.  We need more of that.  Who else do you look up to as a strong woman in her field?

    Kelly Ann Conway - The first woman to run a successful Presidential campaign. How's that for sticking it to the left's view of strong women.
    Unlike hillary killary, she did it honestly - no dealing with elites to trash her opponents. She ran a well run campaign without big money from corporations with Trump, who the left accuses of "hating" women.
    Let's see the demoncraps pull that one off!
    Don't look at what people say, look at what people do.
    Trump picked a smart woman who helped him get into the White House.
    Bravo Kelly Ann Conway on a job well done!!!

      Thanks for your input!  It's unfortunate I hadn't heard about her before you brought her to my attention.  I'll have to read more about her.  Thanks!

      kbdress,
      Interesting you "Haven't heard of her" She's only been on center stage for over a year. Been on most of mass media's shows in interviews.
      Funny how the mass media ignores small things like this, isn't it?
      Cheers

      John, to be fair, I'm a college student that doesn't pay for cable.  Any TV I see is via netflix or hulu.  That might be why I was ignorant of who she was. I try to keep up to date online, but either media bias or lifestyle prevented it.

    Were you aware that Clinton defended a child rapist she knew was guilty?
    That she demonized the women who accused her husband of rape?
    That she supported the demonization of women who weren't feminists as not really women and the use of the state to punish critics, such as the IRS repeatedly auditing people investigating her husband's abuse of power in the 1990s or sending the EPA and DoJ to investigate businesses whose owners criticized her, including many owned by women?
    Good lord, why are you upholding one of the most corrupt, abusive people in modern American history as a role model?

    1. The Old Guard profile image70
      The Old Guardposted 19 months agoin reply to this

      All true, Tamara.
      Clinton, behind closed doors, was a witch.
      Bitter and bigoted - too bad the mass media ignored that fact.
      Cheers

      Actually, I agree.  I didn't vote for her for these reasons.  But I know many of her supporters saw her as a role model.  This was a naive attempt to find common ground in other female role models that isn't going as intended, not an endorsement.

    There are many , but just distinguished by the category of work , they are doing.
    It reminds me about one incident , which Priyanka Chopra , Quantico star shared with media once. She was told by one of the directors in Indian film industry that women are replaceable characters in movies. Rather, male characters are the ones, who need to be considered.
    But,  the place which she conquered today, just proves how irreplaceable women are. As, no indian male actor has conquered Hollywood industry at such a large scale till now.
    Another one is Ameenah Gurib Fakim , the first women president of Mauritius. According to her, power is a legacy , which attain through true faith is the leader. It's not about the theory of dictatorship, where you hire and  fire people, according to your benefits.
    Then, let's not forget about Serena William. Though, most of time , we associate women power with politics and economy.
    All of them are powerful, as they broke the stereotypical phallocentric society.

      WOW!  Good for Priyanka for not giving up in an industry in which she wasn't appreciated.  That says a lot about someone's character!  Thank you for your response.  I don't know most of these women.  I look forward to researching more about them!

    It seems a lot of people would love for Michelle Obama to run and I can see why.  She's an intelligent, classy, inspiring woman and I think she's an excellent role model.

      Cool, I always wonder what I "incite"
      We don't need another person in the White House like michelle that wants to take away our freedoms.
      8 years of a marxist is enough, me thinks.

      And by "our" you clearly do not mean your country as a whole.  The incoming president wants to take away women's freedoms but you all seem fine with that.

      The Old Guardposted 19 months agoin reply to this

      Considering Trumps campaign manager was a woma,n how do you figure "women's" rights will be taken away?
      If you mean that women cannot use taxpayers dollars to have abortions, I agree whole heartedly!
      Cheers

      Oh you're right, the fact that his campaign manager was a woman totally nullifies the implications of wanting to overturn Roe v. Wade.

      Well, he said give it back to the states, where it belongs.
      Why do you think taxpayers ought to pay for abortions?
      Idiotic and insane!

      Aime Fposted 19 months agoin reply to this

      The right for a woman to have access to a safe & legal abortion should not depend on location.

      Isn't abortion only funded by taxpayers in the case of Medicaid & under extreme circumstances?

      Nope, Planned Parenthood only exists because of support by the government.
      That's why so many people dislike what goes on tax dollars are used to support the abortion mill.
      If it was women paying, I think it'd be less of a problem

      Aime Fposted 19 months agoin reply to this

      I can sympathize with people not wanting their money to go towards something they vehemently disagree with. I can. But there are situations where it's not possible or ethical (IMO) to demand that a woman pay out of pocket.

    12. The Old Guard profile image70
      The Old Guardposted 19 months agoin reply to this

      Well, that's where you and I disagree.
      My view is taxes are theft - so the only way I pay for your abortion is by the government robbing me. So now I'm twice as ticked
      1) I'm being robbed
      2) to pay for something that I object too.
      Understand?

    13. Aime F profile image84

      Sure.  We definitely disagree.  I'm okay leaving it at that.

      I don't necessarily want to see her in the white house due to differing policy views, but I agree Michelle Obama is a class act. 

      John, she's actually not disbarred, her license is inactive.  Snopes can clarify the difference if needed.
