An Organization setting the example for women in the conservative movement:
Turning Point USA is a 501c3 non-profit fighting for the right to free speech. Turning Point is hosting their annual Young Women’s Leadership Summit in Dallas, TX. This conference will include many female leaders such as Kellyanne Conway, Susan LaPierre, Kimberly Corban, Antonia Okafor, and Tomi Lahren.
Unacceptable behavior from anyone fighting for the rights of women:
- Not attending work, and calling it “a day without women”.
- Wearing costumes of genitalia to public marches to get your point across.
- Threatening to blow up the White House.
All in all, there is a correct way of advocating for women, and these women have certainly done so. They have truly shown what it means to be strong, powerful and confident women, all in the name of what Feminism truly stands for.
