Introduction

On November 9, 1916, Jeannette Rankin (R-MT) was elected to the House of Representatives as Montana's Representative-at-Large to the 65th Congress (March 4, 1917-March 4, 1919). This election win gave Representative Rankin the distinction of being the first woman elected to serve in Congress.1 The first woman to serve in the Senate was Rebecca Latimer Felton (D-GA). She was appointed in 1922 and served for one day.

Three hundred sixty six women have been elected or appointed to Congress.2 These figures include six nonvoting Delegates, one each from Guam, Hawaii, the District of Columbia, and American Samoa, and two from the U.S. Virgin Islands, as well as one Resident Commissioner from Puerto Rico. Of these 366 women, there have been3

  • 247 Democrats and 119 Republicans;
  • 309 (211 Democrats, 98 Republicans) women elected only in the House of Representatives, including 7 (4 Democrats, 3 Republicans) women who have served as Delegates or Resident Commissioners in the House;4
  • 41 (25 Democrats, 16 Republicans) women elected or appointed only in the Senate; and
  • 16 (11 Democrats, 5 Republicans) women elected or appointed in both houses.

A record 131 women were initially sworn in for the 116th Congress. One has since resigned, and one has been appointed.5 This is higher than the previous record from the 115th Congress (109 women initially sworn in, 5 House Members subsequently elected, and 2 Senators subsequently appointed). Of the 131 women currently in Congress, there are

  • 26 in the Senate (17 Democrats and 9 Republicans);
  • 105 in the House (90 Democrats and 15 Republicans); including
  • 4 women in the House who serve as Delegates or Resident Commissioner (2 Democrats and 2 Republicans), representing the District of Columbia, American Samoa, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico.

The total also includes

  • 25 African American women, 10 Asian Pacific American women, 15 Hispanic women, and 2 Native American women; and
  • 6 women who chair House committees, 1 woman who chairs a Senate standing committee, 1 woman who chairs a House select committee, and 1 woman who chairs a Senate select committee. One of the House committee chairs also chairs a Joint Committee.

Other notable facts about women in the 116th Congress include the following:

  • Not including Delegates and the Resident Commissioner, women currently hold 101 (23.2%) seats in the House of Representatives and 26 (26%) seats in the Senate, totaling 127 (23.7%) of the 535 voting seats in the 116th Congress.
  • Including Delegates and the Resident Commissioner, women currently hold 105 seats in the House of Representatives, increasing the total to 131 seats (24.2%) in the entire Congress.

Notes: Names of Democratic Representatives and Senators in Italics; Republicans in Roman.
Prior to the adoption of the Twentieth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, effective Oct. 15, 1933, the terms of Representatives and Senators began on March 4, in conformance with a resolution of the Continental Congress implementing the Constitution (adopted Sept. 13, 1788). The Twentieth Amendment provides inter alia that the terms of Representatives and Senators shall commence at noon on Jan. 3, in the year following their election. The first Congress affected by the Twentieth Amendment was the 74th (1935-1937). Since 1934, the first session of a Congress convenes on Jan. 3 of odd-numbered years and adjourned on Jan. 3 the following odd-numbered year. For ease of use, this table lists the closing date of each Congress as an even-numbered year. For more information, see http://www.senate.gov/reference/Sessions/sessionDates.htm.

a. Moved from House to the Senate during this Congress. See biographical information in the Alphabetical Listing section for additional information.

b. Member did not serve the entire Congress. See biographical information in the Alphabetical Listing section for additional information.

c. Gladys Spellman was elected also to the 97th Congress, but was unable to be sworn in because of a disability and her seat was declared vacant on Feb. 24, 1981.

d. Eva Bowring was appointed to serve until a successor was elected to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Dwight Griswold. Hazel Abel was elected to fill that vacancy.

e. Was elected but not sworn in since chamber was out of session. See biographical information in the Alphabetical Listing section for additional information.

f. Appointed to fill a vacancy at the end of the 67th Congress, and served for one day.

Table 2. Women in Congress, 65th-116th Congresses, by State or Territory

Representatives, unless denoted as Senators (S), Delegates (D), Resident Commissioner (RC), or as having served in both chambers (B). Names of Democratic Representatives and Senators in Italics; Republicans in Roman.

Prior to the adoption of the Twentieth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, effective Oct. 15, 1933, the terms of Representatives and Senators began on March 4, in conformance with a resolution of the Continental Congress implementing the Constitution (adopted Sept. 13, 1788). The Twentieth Amendment provides inter alia that the terms of Representatives and Senators shall commence at noon on January 3, in the year following their election. The first Congress affected by the Twentieth Amendment was the 74th (1935-1937). Members elected to fill a vacancy are sworn in and commence their terms as soon as possible, as do Senators appointed to fill a vacancy.
