Several women on Election Day broke glass ceilings and earned historic “firsts” for their respective elections, but you didn’t hear about any of them.
One woman who won on Tuesday was the first Korean-American ever elected to Congress. Did you hear about it? Another woman who was elected was her state’s first female senator ever. Anything? A couple of women became their state’s first female governors. Didn’t hear about any of these either?
Could it be because these women are Republicans?
The Federalist reports a full list of the women who achieved, triumphed, and are continuing to lead the way following their victories on Tuesday’s election.
Check it out:
Young Kim became the first Korean-American woman elected to Congress. She now represents the 65th Assembly District, which includes parts of northern Orange County. She’s an entrepreneur, a minority, and a Republican. Despite fitting identity boxes that the left claims to celebrate, not only is the media failing to celebrate her win, they hardly covered her race at all. Regardless, she is a rising star to watch and her life story is inspiring.
Marsha Blackburn will become Tennessee’s first female senator ever. Blackburn is a mother and businesswoman who formerly represented Tennessee’s 7th Congressional District. Not only did she win her race, making history in the process, but she did so following Taylor Swift’s blockbuster demand that Tennesseans vote for Blackburn’s male opponent, because women’s rights. Blackburn won her Senate race by at least ten points.
The state of Iowa, which politicos typically like to consider a predictor of success for either party, elected their first female governor. Republican Kim Reynolds became Iowa’s first female governor Tuesday, besting her male opponent in a win local Democrats called “confusing.” (Try not to laugh.)
South Dakota also elected their first female governor. Kristi Noem booted her male opponent from office as well.
“The party of women” and the media wouldn’t dare to show successful conservative women as well, so we will.
Per the Federalist, if Congresswoman Martha McSally wins her senatorial campaign (votes are still being counted), she will be the first female senator for the state of Arizona. She will also be the first female fighter pilot elected to the Senate; similarly, she was the first elected to the House of Representatives.
The Federalist’s Nicole Russell continued:
“Republican women should be proud, and recognized nationally, for ignoring this feminist trap and pursuing their goals anyway. If a woman can do the job well, and her constituents vote her into office, she deserves the spot. Republican women, just like the Democrat women who won, did the work necessary to garner support, raise funds, and in the end, earned the majority of votes. Good on them. If we’re going to award women their achievement, conservatives deserve equal recognition.
“The fact that Republican women aren’t getting accolades, adoring think pieces, or recognition among feminists, liberals, and the mainstream media says more about how feminism has failed women than anything else. These strong, history-making women should be lauded for their courage and tenacity—not only because they won, but because they ignored the special interests who say women only deserve acceptance and celebration if they represent liberal views.”
