MEET THE THREE WOMEN OF COLOR ELECTED TO U.S. SENATE

FEELING REBLOGGY



One silver lining of the election night on Tuesday is the amount of women of color in the U.S. Senate quadrupled with three big wins in California, Illinois and Nevada.
There is only one woman of color currently serving in the U.S. Senate, according to Vox, and her name is Mazie Hirono. In November 2012, Hirono made a milestone for becoming the first woman elected senator for Hawaii and the only Asian-American female senator. Hirono is Japanese-American.
That all changed on Tuesday when Rep. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.), California Attorney General Kamala Harris (D-CA), and former Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto (D-NV) were elected to the U.S. Senate.
