A video (which you can see HERE
) that questions how much progress society has made toward gender equality in politics and in breaking down stereotypes includes footage of none other than Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt.
Leahy is not portrayed in a flattering manner. He is giving Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., a hard time about whether there is enough time for her testimony at a Senate hearing. He is sandwiched between numerous other examples of sexism.
Is it fair for the producers of the video - a group called The New Agenda - to assume he wouldn't have given a man the same hard time?
Do they have a point about society's post-Mayberry progress or lack thereof?
