Waaah.

Via Politico:

Two female Democratic lawmakers walked out of a House hearing on the Obama administration’s contraception compromise Thursday morning to protest the fact that only male witnesses were testifying.

Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.) and Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C.) left the hearing when House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) refused to seat a female witness among the five men scheduled to testify.

“Let one woman speak on this panel right now,” Maloney said before the walkout, requesting that Issa seat a Georgetown University law student who would testify on the rule’s impact.
