In this week’s episode of “pretending conservative women don’t exist,” we saw Marie Claire put out a list of “50 Influential Women and Why They’re Voting” – all whom just so happened to be liberal women. The morning after the election, when Joe Scarborough from NBC kicked off his show with a list of female firsts, he failed to mention several glass ceilings that were shattered by Republican women this year. Since you won’t hear about it much in the mainstream media, check out these Republican women that are breaking barriers:
