White House senior adviser Kellyanne Conway said being female has been an asset in working for President Donald Trump, The Hill reported Sunday.

"I could tell you a great way that my gender has helped me with the president," Conway said. "I think there's a femininity that is attached to the way one carries herself or the way one executes on her duties."

Conway's views on the modern-day notion of feminism, though, put her in the category of "post-feminist, anti-feminist — a non-feminist, definitely" because she said the current definition was "anti-male," the article explained, citing a story in Business Insider.

And, as for working with a staff dominated by men, she said it put the women in a certain standing, saying, "We're heard and we're seen and we're listened to and we are sought out and sought after for our opinions and our judgment and our ideas and our insight."

However, the close working relationship she has with the president doesn't translate to a first-name basis with the chief executive.

"I don't consider him my peer, he is my boss and he is my elder ... so I don't address him by his first name," Conway said. "That has actually allowed me, in my view, to respectfully but forcefully express my opinion on certain matters.”

"I'm actually unafraid to express my mind, but I do it very respectfully. Very respectfully and very deferentially," she added.
