In Honor of Women's Day

Yesterday was International Women's Day and in honor of that momentous event, I thought I'd share with you a fascinating factoid. One hundred per cent of the Wyoming delegation to the U.S. House of Representatives is female!

In Wyoming we have so few people we get exactly one congressperson. She is Liz Cheney, Dick Cheney's daughter. Her two predecessors were Barbara Cubin and Cynthia Lummis.

Between the three of them that takes us back to 1995, some 27 years with exclusively female House membership. Can any other state make that claim?
