COLUMBUS, GA  (WTVM) – Meghan McCain, the daughter of former presidential candidate John McCain, was the featured speaker at CSU's women's leadership conference.

She talked about how she got started in politics, including her time on the campaign trail.

McCain says consultants did not initially know how to take her even asked her to lose weight.

She says her experience serves as an example of how she's hoping to re-define stereotypes and she's encouraging other women to speak up.

McCain also said she has no qualms in saying what is on her mind.
