Sandra Kay Fluke is a Georgetown Law School graduate and women's rights activist.
In February 2012 she came to attention in the United States when Republicans refused to allow her to testify to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on the importance of requiring insurance plans to cover birth control during a discussion on whether insurance should have a contraception mandate. She later spoke to only House Democratic members. Rush Limbaugh, a talk show host, made inflammatory comments about Fluke's statements on air consisting of speculation and slurs regarding her sex life. This resulted in public outcry and the loss of several advertising sponsors from his radio program.
Fluke has gone on to other speaking engagements including appearances with President Barack Obama's re-election campaign. She was a featured speaker at the 2012 Democratic National Convention.
