Twenty Women

113th_Congress_freshman_class__large_Today is a big deal. A really big deal. Today there are more women in the United States Senate than there have every been before. A whole twenty of them – which isn’t even close to the fifty it ought to be, but okay. It’s a step in the right direction for the nation that fell from #17 to #22 in the 2012 Global Gender Gap Report. I can’t do them justice on my own, so I thought I’d share the wisdom of the blogosphere as well as alternately infuriating and informative stories from the national news media. Enjoy! (And don’t forget to write your favorite female senator a letter of congratulations for her success.)
