Elena Kagan & Senator Amy Klobuchar Talk About Women (Video)

At the ongoing senate confirmation hearings of Elena Kagan . . . In response to Senator Coburn's 20 minute rant about how "we" were all so much freer 30 years ago, Senator Amy Klobuchar brought up the subject of women's unequal representation 30 years ago and today. Senator Klobuchar and Elena Kagan proceeded to talk about women and school their captive audience on the recent history of and ongoing nature of women's inequality.

[Klobuchar corrected herself later: Senator Kassebaum was serving in the Senate in 1980.]
