Bay Buchanan To Highlight Tuesday Panel Discussing ‘The War On Women’

Bay Buchanan, a former United States treasurer under president Ronald Reagan, will be the featured speaker at a panel hosted by Young Americans for Freedom tonight in the HUB. The panel, titled, “The War on Women: Fact or Fallacy?” will discuss various ideological and political issues that women face on a regular basis.

A woman who has held the seat of several politically powerful and crucial positions, Buchanan is a fitting and exciting guest speaker, and should spark interesting discussion concerning the “war on women.” Buchanan was the youngest person to ever serve as U.S. treasurer, appointed at the age of 32. In addition, she ran for state treasurer of California, served as senior adviser to Mitt Romney, and has co-anchored a handful of television and radio shows. Buchanan is also a published author; in Bay and Her Boys: Unexpected Lessons I Learned as a (Single) Mom, Buchanan chronicles raising three young children after their father walked out.

Following Buchanan’s speech, the Young Americans for Freedom will conduct a panel discussion featuring:

  • MaKealey Meyers, from the American Association of University Women
  • Nadia Lehtihet, from the College Democrats
  • Michael Straw, from the College Republicans
  • Julie Mason, from the Young Americans for Freedom

The event will start at 7 p.m. Tuesday in 129C HUB, and students of all viewpoints are encouraged to attend, learn, and discuss. If you have any questions for Buchanan or the panelists, you can tweet them at @yafpsu with the hashtag #RespectAllWomen.
