This chapter describes the political histories of Black women, Latinas, and Asian American women serving in the U.S. Congress. Minority women make up a larger proportion of representatives of their respective racial groups than White women.

Measuring the collective impact of women of color is methodologically problematic. Nevertheless, minority female legislators in the U.S. Congress have had subtle, important effects on the politics of this nation.
