First Gay President to Deliver Commencement Address at All-Female Barnard College Tomorrow (Video)
The college president says when the female students are in classes without men they can really be themselves.
Obama will speak at all-female tomorrow.
After the presidential campaign has been focusing on female reproductive rights and other women’s issues, President Barack Obama is coming to the city Monday to deliver the commencement address at all-female Barnard College and attend two high-profile fundraisers.
Arriving in the city late Monday morning, the president is slated to deliver the commencement address before 600 Barnard graduates at 1 p.m.
Obama called Barnard President Debora Spar on February 29 and requested to speak at the commencement.
The original scheduled speaker, New York Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson, agreed to step aside to allow the president to headline the event.
The graduates should really enjoy it before they leave for the private sector without jobs.
