PUNCH BACK TWICE AS HARD: Why SC Rep. Nancy Mace pushed back against Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and women in white. “The voices of women like me are not heard. I think that’s why it struck such a chord. . . . I mean women that feel the same way that I do, that have that same sort of streak: We aren’t going to go along to get along. We’re not going to dress like others. No one is going to tell us what to do. No one is going to tell me what to do. I am my own woman. . . . People are afraid. They are losing neighbors and friends and family for having a political position and I keep asking myself when did it not become OK to agree to disagree? In this climate that we have right now, I think it’s important to say let’s change the game.”
