Activist Sandra Fluke Discusses Women’s Rights, Year-Long Journey
Sandra Fluke is an attorney and women’s rights activist.
One year ago this month, Fluke was a law school student at Georgetown University and found herself immersed in a contentious national debate over the role of contraceptive coverage and whether coverage should be mandatory. Opponents of mandatory coverage cited religious objections.
Sandra Fluke testified about the issue before Democrats in Congress. After that, conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh called her a “slut” and made other derogatory comments.
Fluke kicks off the spring lecture series for the Danforth Center on Religion & Politics with a presentation entitled, “Making Our Voices Heard: Women’s Rights Today.”
Host Don Marsh talked with Fluke about her activism and journey over the last year.
