During the last week, GOP candidate Rick Santorum has been making the media rounds, defending his views on modern feminism. While many have come down hard on the former Pennsylvania senator, Santorum may have found support in the most unlikely of places: The View.

Not when I was four and five, but after that – that there was a time when feminists made the woman who stayed home and had children feel inferior.
