Conservative women are not 'gender traitors' – Don't compare us to 'sheep' because we voted for Trump

Saturday 19:05 GMT

More and more, women on the left are telling me and millions of women like me that to be “real” women we have to embrace the Democratic Party, hate President Trump, support abortion on demand, and believe that a woman must always be telling the truth when she accuses a man of sexual misconduct (unless that man is a Democrat, of course).

A New York Times op-ed written by Alexis Grenell and published last weekend declares that white women who support President Trump are Public Enemy No. 1.

From Joan Baez to Taylor Swift: how musicians found a political voice

Sunday 19:59 GMT

To a list that could begin with Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Joan Baez, Jefferson Airplane, Marvin Gaye and Steppenwolf, now add… Taylor Swift.

The cogency of her intervention is twofold: its relative rarity, and the fact that Swift is who she is – not Joan Baez getting arrested on a peace march, or Paul Kantner urging “Gotta Revolution!”.
