Last night, Jon Stewart interviewed U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) on The Daily Show, where she laid out a compelling case for more women getting involved in politics.Gillibrand stressed the difficulties in getting women to sign on. “Women need to be asked to run,” Gillibrand said.
Gillibrand founded the “Off The Sidelines” program, which seeks to get women involved directly in politics.
She said last night that she didn’t think that Congress would even be having the conversation about birth control access if women — 51 per cent of the country — were proportionately represented on Capitol Hill.
