We’re back with another installment of Conservative Women Weekly! Here are four highlights from conservative women this week.

Meghan McCain opens up about her miscarriage

In a courageous New York Times op-ed, Meghan McCain reveals that she had a miscarriage just weeks earlier. McCain confronts the cultural taboos surrounding miscarriages and offers advice and empathy for women going through a similar experience. While her miscarriage was thrust into the public view without her consent, she discusses how she will use this opportunity to change the narrative surrounding the loss of a baby and provide hope for other women handling this grief while trying to appear strong and put together.

As McCain beautifully notes:

“When my father passed, I took refuge in the hope that someday we would be united in the hereafter. I still imagine that moment, even as I trust that a loving God will see it happen. Now I imagine it a bit differently. There is my father — and he is holding his granddaughter in his hands.”

Sarah Huckabee Sanders attends Republican Governors Association Retreat

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders attended a retreat hosted by the Republican Governors Association (RGA) last weekend. The retreat brings together Republican governors and donors across the country to discuss policy. Since her departure from the position of White House Press Secretary, many have speculated that Sanders would make a governors run in Arkansas. President Trump even offered a preemptive endorsement, tweeting in June, “[Sanders] is a very special person with extraordinary talents, who has done an incredible job! I hope she decides to run for Governor of Arkansas – she would be fantastic.” Her presence at the retreat has reignited these speculations.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Administrator Seema Verma  stands up against Medicare for All

Seema Verma may not be one of the most well-known conservative women, but she has been quietly standing by conservative principles in the healthcare industry for a long time. As Administrator for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, Verma has fought for job training Medicaid recipients and increased accountability within the Medicaid system. This week, Verma spoke out against the 2020 Democrats push for “Medicaid for All”. Verma pushed back on the idea that this would improve healthcare. Instead, she noted how a single payer system would increase costs, strong-arm doctors, and result in worse care.

Margaret Weichert addresses federally employed women

Office of Management and Budget Director and Acting Office of Personnel Management Director Margaret Weichert has been a proven leader in the business sector. In 2018, brought her expertise in personnel management to the federal government. Since her appointment, Weichert has worked to modernize and improve efficiency standards within the federal government. This week, she addressed the Federally Employed Women 50th Anniversary Conference to discuss new opportunities for women in government to refine their skills to meet 21st century needs. Weichert is quickly becoming an inspiration for women in both the private and public sector.
