Kirsten Gilibrand is a NY state senator whose legislation and social action work toward women’s equality is recognized nationally. She passed the historic Lily Ledbetter fair pay act, is a tireless advocate for human trafficking victims, pushes to end campus rape, and
is a champion for paid family maternity leave.
Gillibrand started her career as an attorney at a corporate practice, but longing to effect change for underrepresented communities, she committed herself to a life of public service. She has been a leading voice for women’s equality since running for office in 2006.
For this episode of Broadly meets, we sit in on a human trafficking hearing in Queens, New York where Senator Gillibrand is meeting trafficking survivors who are directly impacted by her legislation.
Then, the senator shares with us, legislation she’s working on, her committment to pushing women’s voices to the forefront in politics, and how she deals with sexism in Washington and the workplace.
