New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand is a busy woman. Between crafting legislation and e-mailing me a daily online petition about filibuster reform or gun control, she apparently finds time to host an online book club for her group Off The Sidelines, an organization that was founded to encourage women to get involved in government and community.

Her guest on the most recent installment was Emmy Award-winning actress Holland Taylor, currently playing former Texas governor Ann Richards in the Broadway run of Ann at the Vivian Beaumont Theater.

Moderated by The Daily Beast's Katie Baker and featuring Amber Mostyn of Annie's List, a group that raises money to support women running for political office in the state of Texas, the discussion focuses on Ann Richards and her impact on women in politics.
