Editors: April N. Smythe
Book Description:
Women, obviously, constitute a significant portion of the population. Historically, though, they have been underrepresented in the halls of government. Before the 19th amendment granted women the vote, lack of suffrage could be cited as the prime reason for deficient representation; but even since then, the proportion of female representatives in Congress has lagged. While the impact on women’s issues may be debatable, the numbers are not. In recent years, though, this situation has changed as several women have risen to key leadership roles and have influenced the national agenda. These advances cannot go unnoticed and the women who have risen to such prominent national spots and earned elective office deserve to be recognized. This book takes up that task wholeheartedly. Provided here are presentations of the history behind women in Congress and their leadership positions. The accomplishments of minority women are also enumerated. The book concludes with a comprehensive listing of all women who have served as Congressional members from 1917-2007 including biographies. Anyone who hopes to appreciate the impact women have had on the national government can use this book to become familiar with the prominent figures.
