Martha Burk, chair of the National Council Of Women's Organizations, was on the Daily Show a few weeks ago. Martha has been protesting and speaking out against the
Male-only policy at the Augusta Golf Club (owned by Augusta National, Inc.).
According to Burk, Augusta members such as Bill Gates and the CEOs of General Electric and Bank of America won't stand up for women's rights because they don't want to cross "Hootie", the President of the Club.
Burk also explains how the Klu Klux Klan have stepped up to support the Club's discriminatory poilcy, saying "This civil rights stuff has gone too far. We support the club. Keep the women out."
She also explains why this battle is one worth fighting.
