"Her white womanhood allows her to be seen as innocent, good-intentioned, and 'pure' — despite the fact that she has shown she favors stripping rights away from countless people in this country." #NiceWhiteLadies refinery29.com/en-us/2020/10/…
“White women are positioned as the virtue of society because they hold that position as the mother, as the keepers of virtuosity, all these ideologies that we associate with white motherhood + white women in particular, their certain role in society gives them power" @AprylW
"This weaponized white womanhood is an important part of the Republicans' larger strategy. They can call themselves "feminists" for putting more women ... in leadership roles, but those [they are] exclusively white + nearly always want to quash the freedom of those who are not."
"Ivanka Trump is a good example of the emptiness of “Girl Boss Feminism,” as are Kellyanne Conway and Hope Hicks and Kayleigh McEnany — all of whom are willing to lie while smiling to defend an administration that veers ever more closely into fascism."
"Barrett is a culmination of those women, with the added protection of motherhood and religion,"
