Young GOP women to Elle magazine: Donâ€™t call us â€˜Baby Palinsâ€™
It comes as somewhat of a surprise that fashion magazine Elle, which is known to feature fun, light pieces such as â€œAlexander Wangâ€™s New Nail Polishâ€ and â€œKhloe [Kardashian’s] Killer Calves (And Thighs!),â€ would publish a four-page spread on conservative women and politics.
Whatâ€™s not shocking, however, is that Elle would fall into the mainstream media trap and arbitrarily categorize a group of right-leaning young women as â€œBaby Palins.â€
This month, the mag printed a story called â€œThe Best and the Rightest,â€ which includesÂ interviewsÂ from accomplished conservative females such as â€œGirls Just Wanna Have Gunsâ€ creator Regis Giles, Fox commentator S.E. Cupp, conservative radio host Dana Loesch, Independent Womenâ€™s Forum executive director Carrie Lukas andÂ Network of enlightened Women (NeW)Â founder Karin Agness.
The article, which dubs the aforementioned women â€œBaby Palins,â€ says the interviewed females â€œshare almost every goal of feminismâ€ and â€œwant to beâ€”and in many cases, already believe themselves to be â€”â€™empoweredâ€™: educationally, financially, sexually. But they resist any effort to put advancing their fellow women front and center.â€ [DailyCaller]
