Up Close: Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand
New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand is telling women to get off the sidelines.
She's on a mission to get more women involved in the political process.
Gillibrand was a little known congresswoman from Columbia County when she was appointed to the Senate by Governor David Paterson to replace Hillary Clinton back in 2009.
Since then she has emerged as one of the most influential voices in American politics.
She has written a new book, "Off The Sidelines", and is encouraging women to speak up, and get involved.To continue reading: http://7online.com/politics/up-close-sen-kirsten-gillibrand/327539/
