ABC News’ Teddy Davis Reports: Does Sarah Palin consider herself a feminist? It depends who is asking the question.

In an interview on NBC Nightly News that aired Thursday, Brian Williams asked Palin: "Governor, are you a feminist?"

"I’m not gonna label myself anything, Brian," said Palin. "And I think that’s what annoys a lot of Americans, especially in a political campaign, is to start trying to label different parts of America different, different backgrounds, different . . . I’m not going to put a label on myself."

While Palin refused to label herself anything while talking to NBC News, she proudly donned the feminist mantle during a recent interview with CBS News.

During her interview with CBS News’ Katie Couric, Palin was asked, "Do you consider yourself a feminist?"

"I do," said Palin. " I’m a feminist who believes in equal rights and I believe that women certainly today have every opportunity that a man has to succeed, and to try to do it all, anyway."
