Representative Niki Tsongas (D-MA) spoke about a variety of topics, including sexual assault in the military, as well as the Keystone XL Pipeline, the investigation into the attack in Benghazi, Libya and her trip to Afghanistan. She expressed concern for women in Afghanistan, in spite of the apparent positive gains over the past several years. She argued that Afghan women may lose some of these gains as the U.S. continues its diplomatic efforts to push the Afghan government to reconcile with the Taliban.
