In the last election there was a record of 117 women who won office.100 of them were democrats 17 of them were republican's. More than 250 women were on the ballot. Women do not have equal representation in Congress. About one in five members of the 116th Congress will be women to put that into perspective women are approximately 50 percent of the U.S. population. Women deserve to have equal representation and equal rights in the world. The last election showed how powerful women are and I believe in the future those numbers will just continue to grow.
