This week, prominent conservative women made headlines by dominating pop culture, ringing endorsements, standing up for their values, and more. Let’s break it down.
Kay Cole James invites Taylor Swift to Heritage
President of the Heritage Foundation, Kay Cole James, invited Taylor Swift via Twitter to a “substantive policy discussion” with the experts in the Heritage Foundation and herself. As James notes, “Every day, we develop solutions to bring more freedom, opportunity, and prosperity to all Americans.” Her effort to reach across the aisle, find common ground, and educate Swift is commendable.
Winning For Women earns Nikki Haley’s endorsement
Winning For Women (WFW), a not-for-profit grassroots organization founded in 2017 to identify female Republican leaders and assist them while running for federal office, has been endorsed by former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley for “fighting to send strong conservative women to Washington who will get things done.”
In a message to over 600,000 members, Haley praised the group and encouraged members to support their work. You can learn more about WFW here.
Female gun rights activist stands up to Beto O’Rourke
Her name may not be clear, but her statements were. During a rally in Aurora, Colorado, a woman, who may not necessarily be a conservative but is definitely a Second Amendment supporter, spoke up against presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke’s plan to confiscate firearms from law abiding citizens. She discussed the importance of self defense, her own experiences with gun violence, and encouraged policies that address criminals not law abiding citizens.
As a crowd of Beto supporters heckled her and criticized her views, Beto actually encouraged them to let her speak and share her piece. She never backed down. While information about her identity and political affiliation may be unclear, her support for the Constitution and bravery in speaking in its defense is a quality all conservative women should admire.
