Women are growing scarcer in our city's legislature. They fill just 13 of 51 Council seats now and that number is dropping to just 11 next term. How does this affect priorities? And what do women Council members think of the #MeToo movement which is calling men to account for sexist, aggressive behavior and worse? Guests: Council members Vanessa Gibson of the Bronx, Margaret Chin of Manhattan, Laurie Cumbo from Brooklyn, and Helen Rosenthal from the Upper West Side.
