On Gillibrand's end, this sort of phony pro-female pandering is commonplace. Though Gillibrand claims to stand for women and against abuses like sexual harassment and assault, she's had some inconsistencies with this issue in the past. GQ reports:

Ironically, the stance that may offer some peril for Gillibrand is the one on which she's been entirely consistent: calling out sexual misconduct. While her work on the issue has made her more relevant than ever, her outspokenness has been criticized for seeming calculated. After condemning Bill Clinton over the Lewinsky scandal, for instance, Gillibrand was met with charges of opportunism. Former Hillary Clinton adviser Philippe Reines tweeted at her, 'Over 20 yrs you took the Clintons' endorsements, money, and seat. Hypocrite. Interesting strategy for 2020 primaries. Best of luck.'
