Conservative feminists" simply don't advocate for the same structural and institutional changes that feminists historically have, said Ronnee Schreiber author of the book Righting Feminism: Conservative Women and American Politics. For them, there's a very narrow view of what feminism is and also a very ahistorical view," said Schreiber, department chair of political science at San Diego State University. Feminism isn't just about a personal identification. It's a political and historical movement.
As Ronnee Schreiber shows, the conservative ascendancy that began in the Reagan era has been accompanied by the emergence of a broad-based conservative women's movement. And while firebrands like Ann Coulter and Phyllis Schlafly may be the public face of rightwing women's activism, a handful of large and established women's organizations have proven to be the most effective promoters of the conservative agenda.

But women's interests are not synonymous with organizations like NOW anymore. As Ronnee Schreiber shows, the conservative ascendancy that began in the Reagan era has been accompanied by the emergence of a broad-based conservative women's movement.
Students of the American women's movement, political countermovements, and women's issues will find this an eye-opening addition to existing scholarship. -Anne N. Costain, Professor of Political Science and Women's and Gender Studies, University of Colorado at Boulder.

Feminism’s ability to attract scores of women and media attention has not gone unanswered by the conservative right.
