The Republican party is full of nothing but old, white, men? AS IF! FFL takes pride in showcasing the awesome and wonderful women of the GOP, regardless of age, race, and career. This week, we are so happy to point our readers attention towards 48 year old Stacey Dash. Stacey is best known for her role as Dionne Davenport in Clueless. (If you haven’t seen the 1995 film yet, GET. ON. IT. You’re TOTALLY breaking girl-code.) Anyways, turns out our girl S isn’t “clueless” after all.

Though Dash isn’t actively working in the political field, she regularly, and unashamedly speaks out about her conservative values and principles. In a liberally dominated line of work, Stacey’s views are refreshing to see, and we LOVE that she doesn’t allow herself to be pressured into the popular opinion. Even during the 2012 election, Dash was nothing short of vocal, giving Mitt Romney her endorsement, much to the dismay of her peers in Hollywood. After the endorsement, Stacey spoke with CNN’s Piers Morgan to discuss the flurry of criticism that came after her support of Romney. Her response through it all? An allusion towards Dr. MLK Jr, which makes us love her even more. “I chose him (Romney) not by the color of his skin, but the content of his character.”

Here’s to hoping that more and more conservative women in Hollywood follow Stacey’s lead and speak out about their beliefs.
