Women in Politics Break Records in 2012

“The 113th Congress will have at least 20 female senators, the most ever in U.S. history. These women include Democrats Elizabeth Warren, Tammy Baldwin, and Mazie Hirono, who all are the first female Senators from their states. Baldwin is the first openly gay Senator-elect, and Hirono is the first Asian-American woman in the Senate.” Not only is that impressive but this will be the first time that white men will no longer be the majority in the Democratic caucus. This is so amazing and unbelievable to see how far women have gone and over come the stereotypical man dominated caucus’ this is the most inspiring article I have read this year about women in power. “EMILY’s List, a progressive organization that works to recruit and elect Democratic women to Congress, raised a record-breaking $51.2 million this election cycle and quintupled its membership to 2 million. The group attributed its many victories to a backlash against Republican efforts to dismiss women’s issues and limit women’s reproductive rights.”
