This week on Dialogue, reporter Steve Kotchko interviews Democratic State Sen. Mae Flexer, one of the legislature’s most vocal supporters of women’s rights legislation.  In the program, Flexer explains why she was one of several officials calling for the resignation of Connecticut Democratic Congresswoman Elizabeth Esty.  Esty faces claims that she improperly protected a key male staffer against allegations of sexual harassment and assault.  Flexer also discusses a proposed legislative measure dubbed the “Time’s Up” bill to help women who’ve faced sexual harassment.
