Former Senator Blanche Lambert Lincoln (D-AR)

BlancheLincoln.jpg

At age 38, former two–term U.S. Representative Blanche Lincoln of Arkansas became the youngest woman ever elected to the U.S. Senate. During her tenure in Congress, Lincoln was a proponent for farmers and rural families, and in 2009, she became the first woman to chair the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry. She stressed the importance of her maternal responsibilities, and devised a schedule where she could achieve balance between her official and family duties. “The most important thing to me was to have a family,” Lincoln said. “I always knew there would be filler. I just didn’t know that my filler would be the Senate.”
