Young, Restless, and Right

In many ways, Ruth Malhotra and Orit Sklar resemble other young college graduates, making their mark in the world. But in other ways, they are light years ahead of their peers.

A few years ago, they filed suit against Georgia Tech, “challenging Tech’s restrictions on speech, its student activity fee policy and the discussion of religious views in Safe Space, a support program for homosexuals,” according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

Both young women say that while Tech’s policies were aimed at “protecting students from intolerance,” they ended up instead “discriminating against conservative students who speak out in favor of traditional marriage and against liberal feminism.”

Their lawsuit “resulted in the speech code being repealed and part of the Safe Space training manual eliminated.”

Recently, Orit Sklar was appointed executive director of the Fulton County (Georgia) Republican Party, and named as one of the “20 Hottest Conservative Women in New Media” by, along with Michelle Malkin and Ann Coulter.
