FILE - In this March 13, 2013, file photo Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., Chair of the Senate Subcommittee on Personnel, addresses panel members testifying about sexual assault in the military during the subcommittee hearing Capitol Hill in Washington. Gillibrand is challenging the Pentagon’s top brass, and some of her more senior Senate colleagues, over how the services handle the epidemic of sexual assaults. It’s a fight that crosses gender and party affiliation, and one that the tenacious 46-year-old just may win. (AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster, File)
