In the first round of Democratic primary debates, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand spoke up strongly not just in favor of women’s democratic rights but in favor of the necessity of having women representing themselves both on the political stage and in the proverbial political back room in advocating for their own interests.
Democratic U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand will give her first speech as an official presidential candidate in New York City today, and will call Donald Trump a “coward” in front of his own hotel.
