These Liberal Female Leaders Have Completely Missed The Message Of Their Past

There has been a tragic divide in recent decades over the meaning of women’s rights.

What began as a movement to give equal pay and respect to women in the workforce has turned into a twisted battle robbing women and families of their God-given purpose.

And behind many of today’s most famous – and liberal – female leaders is some shocking history that would affect generations of women to come.

The 1960s were fraught with conflict as women and minorities worked to be granted equal rights.  Of course, this was, and is, a noble and necessary cause as all are equal in God’s eyes.

But some of the most powerful women in leadership today seem to have turned their good work in fighting for this equality into a different kind of war – one that allows for the murder of the unborn and the destruction of traditional values.

So how did powerful women like Hillary Clinton, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and Elizabeth Warren, to name a few, become so rabidly liberal when their upbringings should dictate otherwise?

If one were asked who the most famous liberal woman is in America today, Hillary Clinton would likely come to mind.

But you would probably be shocked to learn that Clinton was raised as – and still considers herself to be – a faithful Christian.  And even more shocking, she was President of the Young Republicans in college and heavily involved in the party during her early career.

So what on earth caused such a change in her ideology?

Clinton was raised by conservative parents and was encouraged to be independent.  She excelled in school and her parents wanted her to have a strong career not limited by being a woman.

Although she was involved in many Republican organizations during her time at Wellesley College, her political views appeared to change in 1968 when she was working to have New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller nominated against Richard Nixon.

It was there that she said she left the Republican Party for good because she didn’t like the way Nixon’s campaign was smearing Rockefeller – she thereafter placed all conservatives under one umbrella as being “racist” and “elitist,” favoring white men.

As many college students do, Clinton seemed to reinvent her goals.  She would fight for women and children she said, but her career aspirations and feelings of being “held back” by being a woman changed her trajectory.

In fact, many sources say that Bill Clinton proposed marriage many times, but Clinton refused at first.  She thought that her own identity would be “lost” by getting married and having children.

And this is one of the misconceptions shared by many women of the time.  They were working to attain the same things as men, not realizing the damage that would occur by abandoning God’s role for women.

Later came the abortion debate and its tragic legalization.  Progressive women who wanted to be “more” than wives and mothers thought that “choice” would balance the struggle between work and home.

Other liberal female leaders like Ruth Bader Ginsburg had similar experiences.

Ginsburg was raised in a conservative Jewish home and had a strong role model in her mother.  She was encouraged to become educated and quickly focused on a career of creating equality for women.

But while she did some good things to bridge the gaps of equal pay and equal opportunity, her time working for the liberal American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) led her to some of the same conclusions as Clinton.

If women didn’t have to settle down and be wives and mothers, they would have “freedom.”  Or so they thought.

If everyone was allowed to be the “same,” all would be right in the world.  But then, where is God’s design that we are all uniquely made and have our own special purposes?

This ideology eventually included believing that men and women could be, in a way, “interchangeable.”  Why should we have separate genders or roles when we are all capable of doing whatever we like?

Mommy Underground recently reported on the way leaders like Ginsburg have skewed the meaning of equal rights for women.

And this has become an agenda that has spread to epic proportions.

Both women started out with good intentions, working to give women the opportunities of education and career.

But they also helped to cement the false idea that “equal rights” means radically opposing anything that will stand in a woman’s path to power – including having children.

Steadily, both women helped to so completely challenge the notion of what a woman should be that gender itself was under attack.

Other liberal female leaders, such as Senator Elizabeth Warren, had childhood experiences that shaped their quest to change the definition of womanhood.

Warren says her family struggled financially after her father had a heart attack, and Warren had to go to work alongside her mother at age 13.

She worked her way through school to law school, to eventually becoming a prominent professor at Harvard University.

Warren saw that her hard work would lead her to power and success, and she too adopted a new view on the roles and “rights” of women.

Incidentally, Ginsburg also attended Harvard – Clinton, Yale – and these Ivy League colleges, then as now, helped to instill progressive ideology into women who were not content to follow traditional roles.

All of these women started out fairly conservative in their views and were focused on a positive goal – promoting the idea that women could be strong and confident and achieve their dreams.

But somewhere along the way, these women – and thousands of others who came of age at the same time – decided that these dreams could not be achieved living a traditional woman’s role.

Later, as these women all were established and well-regarded in their careers, the message of “equality” became skewed.

No longer enough to have women respected both at work and home, they seemed to plant the message that all tradition should be deviated from.

The “me first” and “do what you want” mentality has been a cornerstone of the progressive movement.  It has led to gender insanity, the destruction of real marriage, religious liberty, and the murder of unborn children because they may stand in the way of a woman’s potential.

It is hard to say exactly where the tide turned in each of these women’s lives, but they were certainly influenced by the social forces of the time, the people they worked with early in their careers, and the rampant liberal ideology that seems to be seeping into our institutions of higher education.

But the tragedy is, in their quest to lift women up, they have made us spiral backwards into a very dark time we may never recover from.

What do you think of the changes in ideology that these famous female leaders adopted?  Do you think the traditional role of women has changed forever?  Leave us your thoughts.
