Transcript for Sen. Kristen Gillibrand discusses her new book live on 'GMA'
We are back with senator Kiersten Gillibrand, and she may be running for election in 2020, and she is out with new book, "Bold and brave: Ten heroes who won women the right to vote." There it is up in times square right now. Welcome back. Thank you. Congratulations on your re-election. You're a veteran now, but you're joining a record number of women in congress. It's so exciting. I can't tell you how excited I am and how gratifying it is. Women came out in record numbers and ran in record numbers. We have 20 women elected to congress because of the election. What will come with so many women? We are mothers, daughters and sisters, and we know what's happening to our communities. The reason why this election was about health care as a right and not a privilege is because we know what it feels like if your son or daughter is sick or your mother is sick and can't get the medicine they need. People in America look to women for that compass, that moral compass about what's right and what needs to be done, and studies even show that when women go to congress they get more things done. More bipartisan effort and bills passed. We'll see what happens. Let's talk about the book. You have an audience of one at home. My son, Henry. He loved this illustrator, and it was "Looking for Lincoln," and he wanted a book like that book and I was lucky enough to ask her and get her and these pictures are so stunning. Henry also noticed when they were doing early drafts, all the women seemed older and they were grandmas. He said, what were they doing when they were young? A lot of these women did their boldest and bravest thing when they were young. Harriet tubman escaping slavery and going back and back into danger to save people. Alice Paul had the largest pride ever in Washington, D.C. For women's rights to vote in 1913. She created that, it was her vision and it seemed like the women's March right after president trump was inaugurated. You have to get this book. I wish we had more time for questions. Thanks for coming in. "Bold and brave" is out tomorrow. Everyone in our audience, going home with a copy.
