These days, it seems like the feminist movement is only getting louder and growing stronger. And, we’d like to count ourselves among them. There’s just one problem.
We don’t buy into all the progressive policy ideas that today’s so-called feminists ascribe to. We don’t believe we’re tragically oppressed by the patriarchy, and we’re not into shaming other women who don’t vote the same way we do. News flash: Not all women think alike!
So welcome to Not Your Average Feminist, where we’ll try week after week, to give our own unique spin on feminism. We promise to give you a fresh perspective on the state of women in America, pop-culture, and society at large every week.

Sensible, smart, conservative woman
Want to listen to conservative viewpoints that will challenge your preconceived notions about the Republican Party? Listen to NYAF. These ladies work their way through relevant topics from a right-leaning standpoint and combine facts and personal narratives to make their point. This podcast helps me to feel less alone about being a young conservative woman ❤️
As someone who spends a fair amount of time rolling my eyes at the so-called “feminist” rhetoric we are constantly exposed to, I am LOVING these ladies! They say all the things I think when navigating today’s overly sensitive, hyper PC culture. Keep it up ladies!
Flipping the script
Hope you enjoy listing as much as I enjoy talking as we all attempt to change the dialog around modern feminist issues.
