Recently we wrote about one of Katie Pavlich's favorite groups, and one she considers a real champion of women's rights: the NRA. Evidently Lena Dunham holds an altogether different women's group particularly close to her heart.
WASHINGTON, DC - JULY 11: Women hold up signs during a women's pro-choice rally on Capitol Hill, July 11, 2013 in Washington, DC. The rally was hosted by Planned Parenthood Federation of America to urge Congress against passing any legislation to limit access to safe and legal abortion. (Image Source: Mark Wilson/Getty Images)
Dunham, the star of HBO's "Girls" series, plans on having an educational aspect to her tour, as fans will not only get to hear Dunham "reading from her book and answering audience questions...[with] oodles of special guests," but also "learn more about organizations close to Lena’s heart, including a special partnership with Planned Parenthood."
This is not the first time Dunham has associated with Planned Parenthood, having been honored at the pro-abortion group's annual gala in 2013 and pushed Planned Parenthood in a Saturday Night Live skit in March 2014.
Dunham's book, for which she received a more than $3.5 million advance, "Not That Kind of Girl: A Young Woman Tells You What She's "Learned"," is due out on September 30.
For comparison's sake, while Hillary Clinton received an ~$14 million advance for "Hard Choices," other notable politicians received far less than Dunham, with Sen. Ted Cruz receiving a $1.5 million advance for his yet-to-be-released book and Sen. Elizabeth Warren receiving $525,000 for her memoir "A Fighting Chance."
