“Glamour” Magazine 'Women of the Year' All Have One Thing in Common

Kristin TateRebel Buzz Contributor

Glamour magazine recently named their "Women of the Year," and the list of recipients didn't include one conservative woman. 

I know, I know... Please try to contain your shock. 

The magazine included Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters to its list, as well as other prominent liberals and left-wing activists such as the organizers of the Women's March who were branded "revolutionaries."  

The magazine states:

They are a diverse bunch—including a refugee, an astronaut, and a supermodel—but they have one thing in common: They aren’t waiting for the world to change; they’re getting the job done themselves. Some, like 19-year-old girls’ education advocate Muzoon Almellehan, are newly minted global advocates. Others, like Nicole Kidman, are household names using their clout to change things for other women (did you know Kidman is promising to work with a female director every 18 months?). They’re all committed to making our world better, and they believe that that starts with being themselves, without apology. 

"Diverse?" Really? 

It's clear that Glamor's definition of diversity is limited to skin colour, but the magazine wants nothing to do with diversity of thought. 

Kellyanne Conway was the first woman to manage a successful presidential campaign. Why wasn't she on the list? Nikki Haley is U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations. Why wasn't she on the list? Sarah Huckabee Sanders is the White House press secretary during a time when the press has never been more hostile or combative. Why wasn't she on the list? 

They're all Republicans. 

Yet half of Glamour's recipients were chosen and recognized for their advocacy on behalf of liberal causes. 

The magazine also made no mention of the #MeToo movement, which was partly inspired by former Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson. Carlson was one of the first women to come forward with bombshell claims about sexual harassment and misconduct by her boss, Roger Ailes. 

If Glamour were truly a feminist publication, it would honour women of all political persuasions, not just the ones who align with one political ideology.

Feminism is supposed to be about women thinking for themselves and celebrating independence. It takes immense courage to come out as a conservative in a sea of liberalism. A true feminist would recognize that finding the voice to do so could be one of the most bold and independent acts a woman can take.

And if Maxine Waters, then why didn’t they also pick her East Coast counterpart Frederica “Cowboy Hat” Wilson?…

Frank tell me what any of those women have done worth a damn you sad bigot? Now go worship climate barbie. LMAO! I really think you need mental health help if you think liberal women and Jihadis and liars are your example.
What terrible things? It is Dems that are shooting up the US. Now go greet some returning ISIS terrorists like a good liberal lapdog. And wash their feet slave.

Name a conservative woman that has done anything worth a damn this year beyond being complicit in the many terrible things that have gone on all year generated by the right.

For fuck sake – do you really need to ask about Kellyanne Conway. She’s a punchline and an attention whore.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders is a compulsive liar with the way she tries to spin things.

I will give you Gretchen Carlson, but I really think you need to raise your standards when it comes to quality women if Kellyanne Conway and Sarah Huckabee Sanders are your examples.

I didn’t think it was possible, but Linda Sarsour makes Maxine Waters seem likable.

You know its a joke, intensional or not, when crazy Maxine Waters is on a “best of” list.

Does working for a female director, as Nicole Kidman promises to do every 18 months, make the film better?

Muzoon Almellehan is so free that she wears a head scarf all the time. Surely, living in the UK, she can shed the bonds of her Syrian past? Working for girls to stay in school in Syria while living in Newcastle shows bravery, well, doesn’t it? How about helping local girls caught up in the sex market run by fellow Muslims? Ah, no.
