The Bushwomen have created an estrogen shield for the White House. “Theirs is the politics of masquerade,” says Laura Flanders. “They are the media friendly face of one of the most extreme administrations in U.S. history.” The mission of the Bushwomen is to cosmetically transform the Republican Party’s image without changing its policies. Are they feminists? Hardly. Flanders adds, “We had twenty seconds of a women’s movement and it’s been backlash every since.”
