Senator Kirsten Gillibrand in Conversation with Sheryl Sandberg

October 8, 2014 @ 3:00 pm - 4:15 pm

If women were fully represented in politics, Gillibrand says, national priorities would shift to issues that directly impact them: affordable daycare, paid family medical leave, and equal pay. In her new book, Off the Sidelines, she speaks candidly about her legislative successes and her crushing disappointments. Gillibrand also shares stories of growing up the daughter and granddaughter of two trailblazing feminists in a politically active family in Albany, New York, and retraces her nonlinear path to public office.

Join Senator Gillibrand with Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook’s COO and author of the book Lean In, for a dynamic conversation about galvanizing women to reach beyond their busy lives and make a meaningful difference in the world around them.
