Gillibrand on Saying Bill Clinton Should Have Resigned: Question Is, ‘Do We Value Women?’

‘I’ve been working my entire 12 years of public life to value women’

RUSH EXCERPT:

GILLIBRAND: “Always pretty clear on the issue. All the questions that were talking about today are really going to the issue of do we value women. It’s not about anyone present and not about anyone industry, it’s about all of us. The b-2 movement has been about creating space for men and women to come forward and tell her truth and to have a possibility of justice. I’ve been working my entire 12 years of public life to value women to allow their voices to come forward politically but also in society and in the economy. I led the movement on making sure we end sexual violence in the military, I led the movement on trying to end sexual assault on college campuses. I led the issue to change how we deal with sexual harassment on Congress itself and was part of a group the possible on a bipartisan basis unanimously this year and so I let on these issues because I think this country needs to value women. So I also lead on equal pay for equal work. A national paid the plan so we can value them in the economy and earn at the full potential. That’s were all these issues are and we have to begin to recognize that when we hold women back, we do not value them and hold back the whole country.”
