Kudos to the women elected in 2018


Seats won:

House = 107

Senate = 14  

Governor = 9

235 women won their party’s primary and over 100 went on to win seats.

There was a 44% increase in female Congressional candidates and a 75% increase in women of color candidates for Congress (since 2012).

There were many firsts including two Native American women elected, two Muslim women elected, the first openly bisexual woman US Senator, the youngest woman to be elected and the first woman to represent her state, Tenessee, in Congress. 

If you have a Kudos for someone that you would like to have highlighted by the WBC Voice, please send it to me, Leslie at lkfoster@siena.edu.  The due date to be included in the next WBC email blast is January 25th.
