The Immigrant Woman Who Confronted Senator Flake

A conversation with Ana María Archila, one of the women who shared their story of sexual abuse with Republican Senator Jeff Flake while he was in an elevator, right after he announced that he would vote to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. As it turns out, the Colombian-born activist had been preparing for that confrontation for a very long time, from her early days working with immigrants in New York City's Staten Island to studying the strategy known as "bird-dogging."
