"It's Kirsten": The D.C. Powerhouse Every Young Woman Must Know
The U.S. senator is not our newest feminist leader: She’s the one who has been here, waiting in the wings, for years.
Women’s voices really aren’t represented [in Congress] on the same level they are in society. And so if we don’t amplify our voices, we won't be heard and the issues we care about won’t even make the top 10 list
Kirsten really took these issues of family and workplace for women and lifted them up in such a way that they are now the centerpiece of so many conversations in Washington
She’s won people over by being a hard worker and a team player and a savvy connecter.
She will buttonhole anybody. She will talk to anybody. If she is behind something, she throws her entire weight behind it.”
