The 118th Congress (2023-2025) will see an all time high number of women serving.
A total of 149 women will be members, with 124 in the House of Representatives and 25 in the Senate.
That means a bit more than a quarter of women in the House of Representatives and exactly 25 percent of the Senate will be women.
A total of 19 Latinas will serve, and 27 African American women, so a total of 46, a bit less than a third of all women members in Congress.
There are also 10 Asian-Pacific Islander women; 2 Native American, Native Alaskan, Native Hawaiian women; and one Middle Eastern/North African woman.
So more than a third of all women serving will be women of color.
Also, 42 Republican women will be in Congress, with 33 in the House of Representatives, and 9 Republican women in the US Senate, with a total of 5 Latina Republican women in the lower chamber.
The Democrats will have 91 women in the House of Representatives, and 16 women in the US Senate. So with 107 women, Democrats more than double the Republican total of 42 women.
And Democrat Marcy Kaptur of Ohio is becoming the longest serving woman in the history of Congress, having already served 40 years in total, breaking the record of Congresswoman and Senator Barbara Mikulski of Maryland.
