GOP Group Courts Women At Convention With ‘Hair And Makeup Touch Ups’

In case the female Republicans in Tampa for the GOP convention aren’t feeling quite glamorous enough to listen to policy platforms, conservative group YG Network has created a pop-up salon near the convention hall that promises to help them “woman up.”

While the men of the GOP gear up to talk policy, debate the merits of their platform, and listen to speeches about the Republican vision for America, the women can stop by Young Guns Network’s “Woman Up Pavilion” for hair and makeup touch ups while cable news plays in the background.

The pavilion was created in honor of Dr. Miriam Adelson, wife of billionaire Sheldon Adelson, to thank her for her huge contribution to the group

Starting tomorrow, the YG Network will also host public policy panels at the Woman Up Pavilion.
