WASHINGTON, D.C. (WHAS11) -- Ashley Judd made her way to Washington D.C. Friday, March 1, but it wasn't for the reason you're thinking.

She was there to speak to students about one of her causes.

Judd focused on women's reproductive health as she spoke to students at George Washington University School of Public Health and Health Services.

After being introduced by the school's dean Judd talked about her early years growing up in Kentucky and how different it was for her.

“How dare I feel so sorry for myself when 2.6 billion people don’t have an appropriate place to go to the bathroom, when children under the age of five die from upper respiratory infections that I can go to the doctor for,” Judd said.

Even Ashley herself seemed to acknowledge the elephant in the room, when one student told her about how nervous she was.

Another student asked her off microphone if she would run for office, but you couldn't hear her response.

And when a reporter asked her Judd didn't say anything.

Judd is rumored to be considering a run for the Kentucky senate taking on Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.
