In an exclusive interview with Hill.TV’s Jamal Simmons, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, the long-serving leader of Democrats in the House of Representatives, batted down the idea that she should resign her position, saying that she believes that the women of America benefit by having a high-level elected official who is a woman.

“Definitely,” she said when Simmons asked her if she felt a special responsibility to represent women in discussions with top congressional leaders.

Pelosi also hinted that she would have resigned as the Democratic leader if Hillary Clintonhad won the 2016 presidential election.

“I never asked anybody to vote for me because I was a woman,” she said. “I knew Hillary Clinton was going to win and then there’s a woman at the head of the table.”

In light of Clinton’s failure, however, Pelosi said she would seek to retain her leadership position.=
