Throwback: Gretchen Whitmer on Good Girl Radio #MeToo

A few years ago I had the privilege to have a vey frank conversation on Good Girl Radio with the then Senate Democractic Leader, Gretchen Whitmer. Now she is a viable candidate for the governor of Michigan. At the time, she was the top Democrat in Michigan and the longest serving in the legislature. Our conversation surrounded a national news story where Senator Whitmer, on the senate floor, shared her survivors story of rape. In hindsight, I was floored at her transparency. I was surprised at how she seemed to detail the anxiety, fear, and even doubt leading up to her decision to share such vulnerable time in her life.
