Conservative Women Keep Turning The Feminism Thing On And Off, Cant Get It To Work!

Had Bristol taken a moment to Google, she would have discovered that the entire first two pages of results on this came from Jezebel, The Daily Beast, ThinkProgress, Crooks & Liars, Media Matters, Huffington Post, NPR etc. She may have also noticed the dearth of conservative sites covering it.

(For what it is worth, Bristol — should you want to lead a campaign to get Chris Wallace fired for those comments, I would be right behind you. I would absolutely support you in any way I could, as would many other women on the Left. But why is it that we’re supposed to do all of this ourselves? Could you maybe help a little, or are you just here to stand over our shoulders and point out when we’ve missed a spot?)

Bristol Palin and Kellyanne Conway are far from alone when it comes to conservative women claiming that feminists only care when women on the left are sexually assaulted or harassed or experience sexism. Yet, if we look at the coverage of Gretchen Carlson and Megyn Kelly’s accusations against Roger Ailes, or at the accusations by a female conservative radio host against formerly beloved liberal icon Al Franken, that is demonstrably untrue. Even going back to the 2008 election, feminists who hated Sarah Palin and all she stood for were still calling out sexist bullshit against her — perhaps most notably, at the Sarah Palin Sexism Watches at both Shakesville and Feministing.

When Sarah Palin was asked about what she thought of Bill O’Reilly’s firing from Fox News, she said that the onus was on women to just “not take a paycheck” if they are being harassed.

“Corporate culture there obviously has to change. Women don’t deserve it, they should not ever have to put up with any kind of intimidating workspace. At the same time, if a woman believes she is being intimidated and harassed, she needs to stand up and do something about it, not stick around for a paycheck for years and years and years and then after the fact complain about what she went through.”
