Libertarian women’s history month: Julie Borowski

30 Mar

Julie Borowski (October 10, 1988 – ) entered the libertarian movement through the presidential campaigns of Congressman Ron Paul, and went on to create a very popular YouTube channel, Token Libertarian Girl, that reached out to young people by addressing current events with humor, as Borowski donned costumes and persona to address her topics.  She is a Policy Analyst at FreedomWorks, having joined FreedomWorks as an Economic Research and Policy Intern in Spring 2010. She graduated Magna Cum Laude from Frostburg State University.

While an undergraduate, she was a Charles G. Koch Summer Fellow with the Institute for Humane Studies, interning at the Center for Competitive Politics. Most recently, she was a government affairs associate at Americans for Tax Reform.  A newlywed, she lives in DC’s Virginia suburbs.
While in college, she developed a passion for the Austrian School of Economics. She served as Vice President and Treasurer of her Maryland Student Legislation delegation and remains active in Students for Liberty and Young Americans for Liberty. She has volunteered for political candidates in Kentucky and in her home state of Maryland. Her writings on various topics have appeared in numerous blogs and newspapers.  She also does volunteer work placing foster dogs.

Borowski says though she votes for Libertarian Party candidates, when the Democrat and Republican are not palatable, she recommends political activism inside the GOP to grow the Liberty Caucus and elect more candidates like Rand Paul, Justin Amash and Thomas Massie.

Pro-life, she often the object of criticism by libertarian feminists, including for her views on how to encourage more women to be active in the liberty movement.  She also from time to time has some friction with her social media followers who are Ron Paul fans, who sometimes have views or approaches more paleo-conservative than her own.
