As young conservative women, it is valuable to have female role models who hold the careers we are working toward.  This is especially important in male-dominated fields such as journalism and the media. Luckily, this generation of young conservatives is host to several women that hold impressive and highly respected careers that we can all admire.

Throughout her career at Fox, Kelly has covered countless international and national stories, proving time and again to be one of America’s top media journalists. Her large media presence recently gained her a spot on Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the World list. If she was not known before the 2016 election, Kelly quickly became a household name through her fearless moderation of the Fox News Republican presidential debates.


2) Dana Perino

Additionally, Perino’s book, And the Good News is…, showcasing her journey through politics, has become a New York Times bestseller.

Her experience as a stand-up comedian adds to the wit in both her published pieces and commentary.  It certainly separates her from other journalists and giving her a unique edge.
