Conservative women can sometimes be a rare sight in the field of journalism and commentary. Going into this field is incredibly admirable, especially for those who have chosen to enter a field that can be rather unfriendly to them, even when they know they will face backlash. The following are five conservative commentators who have destroyed stereotypes and built impressive careers. These five strong, intelligent women are the definition what it means to be a #GirlBoss.

Before Dana Perino was a co-host of Fox News’ show The Five, she was a White House Press Secretary under President George W. Bush. She has also written two bestselling books, “Let Me Tell You about Jasper,” and “And the Good News Is…”  Despite her success, Dana has remained both down to earth and classy. One of my favorite quotes from her states “Confidence is kind, generous, and comforting. It is different from arrogance.” Dana Perino’s success in multiple careers, friendly demeanor, and insightful commentary make her the definition of #GirlBoss.
