Biden Spox: ‘He’s Somebody Who Has Been an Advocate for Women His Entire Career’
BEDINGFIELD: "So, I think you heard him say the most important thing, which is that he’s learned from that experience. He spent — he took lessons from that experience and he went out and campaigned for two women to come on the Judiciary Committee so that no woman would ever have to again face an all-male panel in a situation like that. He doubled down and passed the Violence Against Women Act and has spent the vast majority of his career focused on trying to change the culture around issues of sexual harassment and sexual assault. In the White House, he, along with President Obama, launched the 'It’s On Us' campaign, which is a campaign against campus sexual assault, so he’s somebody who has been an advocate for women his entire career, and I think voters know him, and they know that that’s the kind of leader he’ll be."
