Franken began speaking by addressing the positive outcomes of the country listening to women about men’s actions and how it affected them. He claims, “the moment was long overdue” and hoped it would result in real change, making lives of women better across the country.

In regards to his own allegations, Franken was “shocked and upset.” He said some allegations are “simply not true” and remembers others “very different.” He says he has used his power during his time in the senate to support women, and that a “very different picture of me [has been] painted.”

But, he said, “all women deserve to be heard, and their experiences, taken seriously.” Therefore: “In the coming weeks, I will be resigning as member of the United States Senate.”
