Former Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina has a message for American women and its one that does not jive with the message they’re being sent from the Democratic National Convention. She posted the video of her message with some accompanying advice.
To all the women and girls across this country—regardless of your ideology or your party—let me say this: do not let others define you.
The left will spend this week telling you who to vote for and what you have to believe. Do not let them—that is not feminism. Feminism does not shut down conversations, it does not threaten women, it is not about ideology. A feminist is a woman who lives the life she chooses and uses all of her God-given gifts.
Carly’s message is extremely important in a day and age where young women are told they have to support big government and regard themselves as special class in need of special treatment if they care about women. Carly’s brand of conservative feminism tells women they can be proud, independent, and successful without the help of government.
The speech was given a few months ago at CPAC, but Carly reposted it to Facebook as commentary on the DNC.
