The future may be female, but critics say Kirsten Gillibrand's role may be limited.
“Our future is: Female, Intersectional, Powered by our belief in one another.
And we’re just getting started,” Gillibrand wrote in a tweet.
Critics claimed Gillibrand was trying to pander to progressives ahead of a likely run for president in 2020, looking to portray herself as a feminist firebrand.
Others also criticized the Democrat for embracing “toxic” identity politics rather than viewing everyone as equal.
