I'm liking Michele Bachmann more every day. In an interview with Kirsten Powers, Rep. Bachmann, God bless her, eschews the "feminist" label:
She is clearly a trailblazer for women, throwing her hat into the highest ring in politics. But while Michele Bachmann became the first female presidential candidate of the 2012 campaign this week, she does not, interestingly enough, view herself as a feminist.She's not only pro-woman and pro-man; she's pro-family and pro-child. So it's no wonder she'd rather not be associated with the movement that paved the way for the soul-destroying sexual revolution and its BFF, abortion on demand. Read the rest of Powers' interesting interview.
Unlike Sarah Palin, who has brandished the feminist moniker and spoken of an “emerging conservative feminist identity,” Bachmann told me in an interview Tuesday that she wouldn’t call herself a feminist—instead, she simply described herself as “pro-woman and pro-man.” When I pressed her on the matter, the Minnesota congresswoman said she sees herself as an “empowered American.”
Bachmann seemed loath to engage in the kind of girl-power rhetoric utilized by Palin and Hillary Clinton, who both invoked the perennial—and so far unbreakable—presidential glass ceiling.
