that are all the more rockin' because they graduated from women's colleges.
In the Senate:
Hillary Rodham Clinton, NY-D, Wellesley College
Blanche Lincoln, AR-D, Randolph-Macon Women's College
Barbara Mikulski, MD-D, Mt. St. Agnes College (no longer in existence)
And a high five to the states of Washington, Maine and California for having two, therefore, only, female Senators.
In the House:
Nita Lowey, NY-D, Mount Holyoke College
Nancy Pelosi, CA-D, Trinity University (DC) <--house minority leader
Barbara Lee, CA-D, Mills College
Jane Harman, CA-D, Smith College
Rosa DeLauro, CT-D, Marymount College
Nancy Johnson, CT-D, Radcliffe College
Virginia Browne-Waite, FL-R, Russell Sage College
Katherine Harris, FL-R, Agnes Scott College
Betty McCollum, MN-D, College of St. Catherine
Allyson Schwartz, PA-D, Simmons College
Tammy Baldwin, WI-D, Smith College <--and gay!
Shame on these states, for having NO women in either chamber:
And one of my favourites of these women: Debbie Wasserman Schultz, a Florida Democrat in the House who's pro-gay rights, pro-choice, pro-gun control, and stole my heart when I read that whilst in the Florida Senate she fought to try to make language in the state more gender neutral. Oh yeah, and she shares my birthday (September 27).
