White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway discussed her thoughts on women’s equality and what it’s been like to work for President Donald Trump during the Conservative Political Action Conference on Thursday.
Conway sat down with conservative commentator Mercedes Schlapp for a question and answer session during the first day of the annual gathering. While 2016 made Conway the first woman to run a successful U.S. presidential campaign, she said she does not consider herself a feminist in the “classic sense.”
“It’s difficult for me to call myself a feminist in the classic sense because it seems to be very anti-male and it certainly seems to be very pro-abortion. I’m neither anti-male or pro-abortion,” she said. “There’s an individual feminism, if you will, that you make your own choices. Mercedes, I look at myself as a product of my choices, not a victim of my circumstances. And to me, that’s what conservative feminism is all about.”
