It is undeniable that women's participation in government and politics is a classic rags-to-riches story, and an ongoing one at that. From the earliest days of our nation's formation, women have struggled and fought for greater participation and consideration in the political arena. Historically thought of and treated as second-class citizens, many intelligent, brave, and persistent women have contributed to the breaking down of barriers keeping women from realizing their true potential as an informed, powerful, and active force in American society and politics. Today, twenty-five women Senators and 102 women Representatives serve in Congress, more than ever before. The women of the 116th Congress add more than gender diversity: they add racial diversity. Twenty-two women are black, thirteen are Latina, eight are Asian Pacific Islander, two are Native American, one is Middle Eastern/North African, and one is multi-racial. The total number of women in Congress tops at 127, thus setting a new record for women's participation in government. ""@en ;
