"I think we have found one of the bravest people alive," Glenn said this morning.
Glenn was referring to former volleyball star and model Gabrielle Reece, who is catching a lot of criticism for recent statements she made regarding her marriage. Reece filed for divorce less than five years after tying the know to her husband, surfer Laird Hamilton. That was 17 years ago. The two never got a divorce. Gabrielle Reece recently published a book explaining how she was able to get her marriage back on track.
TheBlaze.com reports that the book, My Foot Is Too Big for the Glass Slipper, Reece credits an "old fashioned dynamic"and abiding by more traditional gender roles as the key — which has created a firestorm.
She wrote, "To truly be feminine means being soft, receptive, and — look out, here it comes — submissive."
In a recent interview with Today's Natalie Morales, Reece explained:
“I think the idea of living with a partner is ‘How can I make their life better?’ So if I’m the woman and he’s the man, then yes, that’s the dynamic. I’m willing and I choose to serve my family and my husband, because it creates a dynamic where he is then in fact acting more like a man and masculine, and treating me the way I want to be treated. Which is — I’d like to be cherished, and I’d like someone to look after me in that role.”
She added, “I think because women have the ability to set the tone, that the ultimate strength and showing real power…is creating that environment. I think it’s a sign of strength.’’

As you can imagine, the usual suspects of the "feminist" left is attacking her. However, this morning on Glenn's radio show, there was nothing but praise and respect given for her statements.
"Let me tell you something. You know who the strongest women are in the nation right now? The strongest women in the nation, more powerful, more self‑confident than any other woman on the planet are the ones who stay home, the ones who raise their children, the ones who teach their children," Glenn said.
"She will be mocked, ridiculed and belittled for this. I say you hold her up."
