Madison, WI
'I'd Like To See Some Of The Men Step Forward'
Kirk and Cypress Stone

As the father of a 9-year-old daughter, Kirk Stone, of Madison, said he would like to see his elected officials have more of a presence in the #MeToo movement.

Stone said he would like to see elected officials draw a bigger focus to off-campus rape, sexual harassment in businesses and sexual harassment in the state Capitol. And, he wants to make sure women aren't the only ones taking initiative.

"I'd like to see some of the men step forward," he said. "I think by and large, our elected male officials have sat in the background."

While Stone said he feels like his local politicians represent his views well, but he doesn't feel that way about the state and federal government.

"By and large, I'm lucky living in Madison ... I don't really have too much to say at the local level," he said. "I think some of the national policies are going to be detrimental to me and my daughter."
