Abigail "Abby" Shapiro (1994-) was an American opera singer, makeup artist, and self-described "conservative influencer". Born in Los Angeles, California to a Jewish family, she is the sister of prominent conservative commentator Ben Shapiro, and she pursued a musical career after attending the Manhattan School of Music. She was subjected to (often anti-Semitic and misogynistic) internet trolling because of her brother's high-profile and controversial views, and, on 14 April 2020, she released a highly unpopular YouTube ad called "Why I Came Out as Conservative: Conservative Women NEED a Community!", in which she claimed that it was difficult for people to express their conservatism without fearing that they might lose their jobs or their friends, especially in the artistic industry. She criticized what she described as conservative women keeping their views "under wraps", saying that conservative women had it harder than conservative men, especially with regard to expressing their anti-abortion views or with being taken seriously. She claimed that there was a need for women to come out as conservative in order to form a community, and because she claimed that everything about her, including her makeup and clothing, came from a "conservative and classic lifestyle". She then announced the launch of her own YouTube channel, "Classically Abby", as a space for conservative women to form an online community.
