Kellyanne Conway: Modern feminism is ‘anti-male and pro-abortion,’ I’m not
NATIONAL HARBOR, Maryland, February 23, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – Senior Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway gave a simple reason why she doesn't label herself a "feminist" in her speech this morning at CPAC.
"It’s difficult for me to call myself a feminist," she said, because modern feminism is "anti-male and pro-abortion. I am neither."
Conway is a staunch pro-life activist who was the first woman to successfully run a presidential campaign. She was responding to a question about the pro-abortion Women's March and Democrats claiming to speak on behalf of women.
Conway spoke at the March for Life last month.
In her CPAC speech, she encouraged college students to stay positive and express their values by joining and starting campus clubs and writing letters to the editor.
"Don’t live online," said Conway. "Live in real time. I’m just astonished how many people live online. It’s a mode of communication; it’s not communication. It’s not real life."
"Know who you are," she continued. "Tune out the naysayers and the critics." You should "possess a certain patience and perspective that many of us in ‘the bubble’ lack."
On the main stage, Conway discussed the importance of her four children in her life. The 50-year-old empowered Catholic mother irked feminists and leftists while running the Trump campaign.
