Issues that matter to women

Sandra Fluke, former Georgetown law student and now campaigner for President Obama, spoke to a total of ten people on Saturday in Reno, Nevada.

She is the woman who was in the news earlier this year for speaking out for free contraception from the government. I guess she has really hit the issues that matter to women, since her audience was so big.

Fluke takes center stage Reno

Anything about Sandra Fluke is simply not complete without commentary from Mark Steyn:

Sandra Fluke is one of them. She completed her education a few weeks ago — at the age of 31, or Grade 25. Before going to Georgetown, she warmed up with a little light B.S. in Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies from Cornell. She then studied law at one of the most prestigious institutions in the nation, where tuition costs 50 grand a year. The average starting salary for a Georgetown Law graduate is $160,000 per annum — first job, first paycheck.

So this is America’s best and brightest — or, at any rate, most expensively credentialed. Sandra Fluke has been blessed with a quarter-million dollars of elite education, and she has concluded that the most urgent need facing the Brokest Nation in History is for someone else to pay for the contraception of 30-year-old children.
