Kirsten Gillibrand Quotes: Why Women Need To Run For Office

AP

New York senator Kirsten Gillibrand really wants women to run for public office.

In an essay for PolicyMic about ending sexual assault in the military, Gillibrand wrote:

When women are at the table, a broader agenda is discussed, an agenda that looks out for all Americans, particularly those who are voiceless. Women’s voices are not better than men’s, they’re different and the broader perspective that we bring often leads to better results. That’s why I’ve been such an advocate for more women to run for office and make their voices heard.

Hear hear, Kirsten!
