Updated through the end of the th Congress, Women in Congress, is written for a general audience and researched using primary and secondary sources. The eBook edition is based on the print edition. A revised set of essays reflects the considerable increase in the number of women in Congress during the last decade. At 81 meetings, organized by women from each of the United States, , people came to the World's Congress Auxiliary Building and listened to speeches given by almost women from 27 World's Congress of Representative Women was arranged, sponsored and promoted by the women's branch of the World's Congress Auxiliary.

Prohibition Dries Up When Prohibition was enacted in , early women Representatives responded to the law’s effects on their constituents. World War II marked a watershed moment in African-American history. It brought economic opportunities and opened new avenues for participation in American society.

Learn more about the current state of women's representation. Women are 51% of the population in the United States but make up only 20% of the U.S. Senate, 19% of the U.S. House of Representatives, 24% of statewide offices, 24% of state legislative seats, and 18% of mayors. Women of color are more poorly represented, and Republican women are underrepresented. Though each generation of women in Congress displayed distinctive traits, experiences shared by women Members united them across the decades. One enduring pattern, called the “widow’s mandate,” the “widow’s succession,” or the “matrimonial connection,” has been an important route for women to attain congressional office, especially the women in the first three generations
