"51% of the U.S. population is female. For the U.S. Senate to have proportional gender equity would mean 51 women in the Senate chamber. As late as 1992 there were only 2 women in the Senate and today's 17 members is an all-time high. Men have been running for office and being elected since 1789 and women only since about 1920, but women are catching up. This book includes: * A history of women in the Senate so far * A profile of each of the 17 current women Senators * What’s different when a woman runs for office? * What if 51 women were in the Senate? What would that mean for America? How would they represent us differently than men? * Quotes from women leaders"
