I would add Juanita Broaddrick, Sarah Palin, Jean Kirkpatrick, and Nikki Haley.


The worm seems to have turned in the 70's...from women who fought discrimination to women who support all thing liberal.

Once you’ve won the real battles, you have to fight imaginary boogiemen.


Thank you Lois Gilbert of AAUW La Crosse and the La Crosse Tribune for this great compilation of remarkable women. This is such a wonderful way to recognize the Women's History Month theme of "Nevertheless She Persisted: Honoring Women Who Fight All Forms of Discrimination Against Women"!

Emily Watson’s role in Harry Potter was great. She clearly belongs with prominent lesbians and abortion rights advocates. What a great list! Thank you tribune for standing up with us liberals on every issue and praising all of the liberal women everywhere!
