Gillibrand discussed her first term in the Senate and efforts to improve government transparency through Congress legislation, most notably the STOCK Act. The interview also touched on the Senator's role as a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, specifically her work to prevent sexual violence in the armed forces and opposition of Don't Ask, Don't Tell.

    The New Old Age

    Since the turn of the 20th century, average life expectancy has been rising steadily. In the United States, we can now expect to live an average of three decades longer than our great-grandparents. As we collectively age, our societal understandings of the rhythms of an average lifespan have been slow to adapt. With nearly 10,000 baby boomers moving into retirement every day, The Atlantic will examine the shape of the new old age and its impact on society.
