Around the time of the Kavanaugh confirmation hearing, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand was fully on board the “believe women” movement when it came to accusations against the SCOTUS nominee:
Women are watching as the most powerful people in this country disbelieve, distrust and minimize their experiences.
We need to answer this: Are we a country that values women? Do we believe women when they tell us about sexual trauma? Do the stories of survivors matter to us?
