Kellyanne Conway, the White House counsellor to President Trump said that she isn’t a feminist at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Thursday.
“It’s difficult for me to call myself a feminist in a classic sense because it seems to be very anti-male, and it certainly is very pro-abortion, and I’m neither anti-male or pro-abortion,” she said.
She talked about her own brand of what it means to be a feminist. She said that she looks at herself as a product of her choices, not a victim of her circumstances.
She also said that women who oppose Trump, and women like those who attended the Women’s March have a problem with women in power.
She said that the whole sisterhood, of going and marching for women’s rights, is more about constantly talking about what women look like, or what they wear, or making fun of their choices.
Conway has been criticised for her views. She has endorsed Ivanka Trump’s clothing line in a television interview.
She is a staunch Trump supporter who says that Trump is compassionate and a great boss to women.
Here are some things to know about her:
She is the first woman to be a campaign manager for a Republican President.
She studied at Trinity College and Oxford University.
She founded the Polling Company in 1995, which helps Republican candidates appeal to female voters.
She is married with four children.
She wrote a book called What Women Really Want along with democrat Celinda Lake.
