The Conservative Woman
The Conservative Woman is a British political website started in 2014 with a conservative outlook. It describes it's values as being "unashamedly those of faith, married family and nation-state".
Type of site
The website deals with matters concerning British politics, especially if they are of a social, religious or cultural nature. To a lesser extent economic matters and foreign affairs are also discussed, as is American politics. Writers are usually highly critical of feminism, victimism and sentimentality.
The Conservative Woman was launched by co-editors Kathy Gyngell and Laura Perrins.
