Sarah Palin and the Rise of the Feminist Right

My first contribution to the Washington Examiner:

Equality is not met by comparing oppression or mediocrity, but by comparing potential and excellence; nor is it met by tearing down the opposition or suppressing ability. Liberal women are quick to ignore their strengths and unique qualities and measure their success by masculine standards in the workplace, in sports or in the home.

[…]

Conservative women are active because the liberal idea of feminism has failed. An entire generation of berated men have been hog-tied by the chick card, and conservative women are tired of the liberal stereotype that they’re all simpletons who only raise their voices to sing in church.

More from me on this topic again very soon.
