Gloria Feldt (of Women's Media Center):

"[...] women's physical appearance and their sexuality is so often the first thing that you hear about, before you hear about what they believe about issues, or how they have voted on important legislation. [...] These kinds of sexist activities [...] often people don't even realize what they're doing.

"We heard about Hillary's ankles, her turquoise pantsuit, we heard about her hair, we heard about her cleavage, but how much did we hear about what she really thought about the issues? That's the thing. [...]"

Molly Paige (co-host on America's Radio News):

"That's true, you really never hear about Mitt Romney's ankles."

Audio at America's Radio News, no date on the page, but the filename suggests 2012-07-06.

I saw @SandraFluke's retweet of @FemMajority's tweet that pointed to a WMC post (with an even more abridged quote) that in turn linked to the audio clip.
