The New Class Of Congresswomen Is Already Taking D.C. By Storm
The move is just another reminder that the new House class is of a different political breed. Thanks in great part to the
gains made by Democrats, the incoming Congress is set to be the most female,
most diverse ever, both racially and ideologically. (For example, more than 100 women won their races across the country.) The class is full of members
making history: youngest congresswoman,
first Indigenous women and first Muslim women elected to Congress,
first Latinas representing Texas,
first openly bisexual woman representing California, first Black women to represent
Massachusetts and
Connecticut, first Ecuadorean-American in the House, and the list goes on and on.
