Obviously, I'm confused.[edit]

I read this sentence: "Schlafly claimed it would mean women would be drafted into the Army on the same basis as men." I'm confused about what she wants. Does Schlafly want women higher, lower, or at least the same level as men? A. Scholar (Nabu) (talk) 22:55, 21 May 2016 (UTC)

In Politics Today[edit]

Should there be more examples of conservative women politicians. For example, Carly Fiorina? Snuyen (talk) 04:29, 11 October 2016 (UTC)

Section About Organizations[edit]

Should there be a section on conservative women's organizations? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Snuyen (talkcontribs) 04:31, 11 October 2016 (UTC)

Some things to add[edit]

I agree that there should probably be a section on conservative women's organizations. I plan to add that as well as updated information on politics today (ie Michele Bachmann, Carly Fiorina, etc.) a historical section of conservative women focusing on Orange County and the anti-suffrage movement, and a section on the main concepts of women's conservatism and how that opposes/intersects with feminism.

Current Conservative Political Climate[edit]

I like that you included aspects about politics today with examples of current conservative women. However, I was wondering if there was anything, in addition to the specific women, that contributes to the current conservative climate of women in politics that could be added? An interesting aspect to explore might be how the 2016 presidential campaign played out in terms of votes from conservative women. Kbrumfield (talk)
