VIDEO: Meghan McCain discusses Newt Gingrich, Gilbert Gottfried and more

Women "can demand better than what this culture is giving us right now," Meghan McCain said during a speech this afternoon at Columbus State University’s seventh annual Women’s Leadership Conference.

McCain, a prominent blogger and daughter of U.S. Sen. John McCain, spoke at a luncheon that was part of the two-day conference.

Her speech centered largely on disparities in cultural perceptions of male and female politicians.

"I would like a different landscape than what we have now," McCain said. "I still think there's a glass ceiling that's left to be shattered."

McCain writes a column for The Daily Beast and has a Twitter account with over 104,000 followers.

She expanded her following with “Dirty Sexy Politics,” a 2010 memoir that addresses her father’s presidential campaign, the Republican Party and much more. She also wrote a 2008 children’s book, “My Dad, John McCain.”
