White House counselor Kellyanne Conway did not oppose the Women's March on Washington held in January in outrage over President Donald Trump's inauguration — but said that she would "rather do than march."

"I don’t object to other people marching at all — you know, my friends were there," Conway told New York Magazine in an interview published Saturday. "But I’d rather do than march; I’d rather act than talk."

As many as 500,000 people converged on D.C. for the Jan. 21 protest, held the day after Trump's inaugural. Millions of others participated in "sister protests" around the United States and the world.

In the interview, Conway described what she called "conservative feminism": It is "softer," "less anti-male" and "less pro-abortion."

Conway, 50, a married mother of four who spoke at the March for Life in Washington the following week, told New York Magazine that she would not judge a woman for getting an abortion — saying she was "sympathetic" to any woman making such a decision.

"Do I know anybody who ever got an abortion?" she said. "Well, of course I do.

"When you’re young, you’re thinking about the person, not the issue," she later added. "We were younger — and I was focused on her, not on the larger public policy."

She said that she objected to the position that abortion should be available to "anyone, anytime, anywhere."

Conway told the magazine that "one goal" of hers was "to make us culturally — not politically — culturally more sensitive to the value of life."
