When the new Congress is sworn in next week, for the first time ever it will start the session with more than 100 women. While this is a milestone, the number is only a slight increase from the last Congress. We look back in the Washington Week Vault to post-election 1992 and the demographics of the incoming 103rd Congress. During the so-called "Year of the Woman," Congress saw the largest year-over-year increase in women members ever. The Senate tripled the number of women from two to six. Carol Moseley Braun became the first black woman elected to the Senate, and California became the first state to be represented by two female Senators. The same election saw 19 new Hispanics and African Americans elected. As U.S. News and World Report's Gloria Borger said on Washington Week, Congress had "finally adjusted itself to the demographic realities of our world."
