Glamour’s 2017 Women of the Year Awards Excludes Conservative Women
Glamour magazine recently held their “Women of the Year” awards, yet conveniently left out conservative women. You would think there would be at least ONE worthy of one of a nomination? According to their web site, the awards to go game changers, rule breakers and trailblazers.
For 27 years, Glamour’s Women of the Year Awards has honored game changers, rule breakers, and trailblazers. This year proved to be one of our biggest ever. This year’s Women of the Year honorees cover a lot of bases—an astronaut, a supermodel, a refugee, an Oscar winner—but they’re all using their platforms to improve the lives of women everywhere.
I saw plenty of conservative women in 2017 who fit the bill. Instead, people like Maxine Waters, Samantha Bee, Laverne Cox, the Women’s March organizers were chosen.
So since Glamour failed to recognize the rock stars in the conservative movement, I’ve decided to put together a few outstanding conservative women myself who deserve recognition.
Hope Hicks & Sarah Huckabee Sanders
Hicks, communications director for Donald Trump and Sanders, White House Press Secretary make the first female led White House Communications team in history. Feminists should be celebrating! Yet no one seems to be acknowledging their accomplishments.
Current ambassador to the U.N., Nikki Haley has taken tough stances on Russia and Iran and been a strong supporter of Israel. Could she be our first female president?
NRA Spokesperson and host of “The Dana Show”, Dana Loesch has been one of the Second Amendment’s most vocal supporters. Dana takes a lot of heat from the left and often gets rape and death threats from the anti-gun crowd.
Former senior communications advisor and speechwriter for Senator Ted Cruz, Amanda Carpenter now works for CNN as a political commentator. Carpenter actually used to write for Glamour’s political blog, so you’d think they’d take the time to honor her! She’s often outspoken and critical of President Trump but makes a lot of great points in her writing and commentary.
Conservative/Libertarian YouTube blogger Elly Maye is one of the rising conservative millennial stars. Her funny videos tend to go viral with the Republican crowd and if you haven’t watched one, start with “Top 10 Reason’s Why I’m Not a Democrat.”
And those are JUST a few of the many conservative women Glamour could have chosen to recognize, but didn’t. They’re all rising stars and blazing new paths and deserve some recognition for their contributions to the conservative cause.
Thank you, ladies, for all that you do to show that yes, there ARE young, female conservatives out there that we can relate to.
