Meghan McCain voiced her support for marriage equality in a speech at the Jack Morton Auditorium Thursday night, calling the gay rights movement "this generation's civil rights movement" and urging like-minded "progressive Republicans" to start speaking out.
McCain - the daughter of former Republican presidential nominee Sen. John McCain - was met with a protest by GW's Young America's Foundation before the event for her stance on gay marriage, but McCain fired back during her speech, telling the audience that she is outspoken on provocative issues because she believes in them.
