Clinton to speak at Rutgers women in politics forum
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-New York, will speak at Rutgers University Friday on the topic of women and politics.

The event, originally scheduled for August 16 but rescheduled due to weather, marks the 35th anniversary of the Rutgers Eagleton's Center for Women and Politics.

A University representative tells CNN that the invitation for Clinton to speak was extended long before Don Imus made his controversial comments about the Rutger women's basketball team, but the presidential candidate did not accept the school's invitation until late last week.

Asked if Clinton's decision to speak at the school is connected with the high profile fallout following Imus' comments, the university representative said, "Use your imagination."
