(Newser) – Sandra Fluke, Eva Longoria, and the president of Planned Parenthood are among the 10 women Democrats added to their lineup of convention speakers today, in their effort to cast themselves as the most woman-friendly option in November. Also on the list are Lilly Ledbetter (of Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act fame); Caroline Kennedy; openly gay Senate candidate Tammy Baldwin; congressional candidate Tammy Duckworth, who lost both legs fighting in Iraq; pro-choice activist Nancy Keenan; and Barbara Mikulski, the longest-serving woman in the Senate, Politico reports.
