Despite the oft-repeated line from the left that Republicans are conducting a “war on women,” the GOP is filled with strongly principled women and many traditional conservatives who make their voices heard loud and clear.
The National Federation of Republican Women numbers close to 100,000 members nationwide, and conservative females are heavily represented in state, local, and federal government, including in the House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate. One was even in the running for president this cycle.
Here, Newsmax has compiled a list of 50 of the most influential female Republicans who will play a key role in shaping America’s future.
1. Sarah Palin — The former governor of Alaska was up for vice president in 2008 and has been an outspoken Tea Party leader, television star, author, and political commentator.
2. Cathy McMorris Rodgers — The congresswoman from Washington since 2005 is the chairwoman of the House Republican Conference, a position that makes her the highest-ranking woman in Congress.
3. Laura Ingraham — A best-selling conservative author and host of the “Laura Ingraham Show,” as well as the guest host for Fox News Channel’s “The O’Reilly Factor” and a contributor on ABC News’ “This Week.”
