At the end of Jon Stewart’s interview with Senator Kirsten Gillibrand about her new book “Off the Sidelines,” Gillibrand says she feels lucky to have had many positive role models and mentors in her life—seeing Hillary Clinton speaking in China inspired her to leave her corporate job and do something she really cared about– and hopes this book of personal stories will provide a similar inspiring message to women and girls.
Stewart does her one up, in a nice way, sending a message which garners my heartfelt appreciation, that the book should be required reading for every man as well. It will help men develop Empathy for the embedded and institutional challenges that women face every day. Great advice!
This is not a women’s issue. It is a humanity issue.
