Here at FFL, we believe that women are a force to be reckoned with and we aren’t afraid to say so. 51% of Americans are women, meaning that they aren’t the helpless minority that Hillary and her feminist army paint women to be.  Rather, we are a majority of fierce and confident individuals. Modern conservative women are incredible on their own, they don’t need the label modern “feminist” to feel empowered. Republican women know their strength without a label to reassure themselves.

Being independent is the most beautiful thing a woman can be in the twenty first century. Strong women know their rights.  They know that they can stand on their own with grace. Ainsley Hayes of The West Wing said it best when she said this: “I am a citizen of this country, I am not a special subset in need of your protection.  I do not have to have my rights handed down to me by a bunch of old, white men.” There is nothing in this world more attractive than a woman who is independent, who believes in herself, and who works tirelessly toward her goals.

The current modern feminism movement likes to tell women that they are an oppressed minority that must rely on feminism to give them the rights they deserved.  They are wrong. Women are NOT the minority and they have all the rights that a man does. Women can accomplish anything in America. There’s nothing more beautiful than a pair of high heels taking on the world, graduating first in the class, and accomplishing their dreams. Independent women are inspirational, they’re the role models that children should look up to.

FFL firmly believes that we need more high heels on the ground. With 2016 coming quickly, we need strong women to help lead the conservative charge to the victory. As Carly Fiorina demonstrated in her run for the White House, a conservative woman who can hold her head high and debate with the good ole boys is someone that cannot and will not be overlooked. In 2016, women are rising to the challenge, they’re standing up to those who try to silence them.  They’re fighting for the values they hold close. The high heels are coming out.  I can’t wait to be a part of it.
