Not a Women's Libber

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minnesota) is one of several conservative lawmakers opposed to legislation to open a Women's History Museum on the National Mall. "I rise today in opposition to this bill, because I believe ultimately this museum that will be built on the National Mall, on federal land, will enshrine the radical feminist movement that stands against the pro-life movement, the pro-family movement and pro-traditional marriage movement," the former presidential candidate said on the House floor. But the bill passed overwhelmingly by a vote of 383-33.
