Senator Kirsten Gillibrand is anything but your typical politician. An attorney and Democratic representative from New York State (not to mention a mom to two wonderful sons), she has been a vocal advocate for women's issues and is best known for successfully championing both the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell and the adoption of the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act. Senator Gillibrand continues to inspire us by calling everyday Americans to action on making this country a better place for all involved. See more from Senator Gillibrand on Twitter @sengillibrand, her official website and visit Off the Sidelines, which encourages women to become involved in the issues they care about most.
