CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (CBS Connecticut) — A women’s advocacy group is auctioning off a strategy session with Sandra Fluke, the woman who was at the center of controversy earlier this year regarding college health care plans paying for birth control.

The Cambridge-based group, WAM! (Women, Action and the Media), is offering the highest bidder a one-on-one strategy session with Fluke to help get the bidder’s campaign off the ground.

“Social justice advocate Sandra Fluke will help you harness the power of activism and/or advocacy with this strategy session,” the auction states. “You bring the expertise on your issue, and Sandra will bring her sharp strategic mind and national experience.”

Fluke, who graduated from Georgetown University Law Center, was the ire of conservative pundits after she testified on Capitol Hill to congressional Democrats that college health plans should cover women’s birth control.

Rush Limbaugh called Fluke a “slut” and a “prostitute” following her testimony. He later apologized for his comments.

After being thrown into the limelight, Fluke went out on the campaign trail for President Barack Obama to raise the issue of women’s rights.

The highest bid for Fluke’s services as of Tuesday morning is $110 out of eight bids. There are eight days left in the online auction.

According to the group’s mission statement, WAM! is an advocacy group for gender justice in media.
