Record numbers of women ran for office and won on both sides of the aisle in 2020. Americans elected the first woman vice president, and in congressional and state races across the country Republican women, black women, native women and trans women broke barriers and made record gains. Now as they step forward to lead in the 117th Congress and in state houses across the country, they will bring insights, innovation and a willingness to fight for the principles they ran on. How will this history-making class of women lead into the future and how will women lead in this challenging national moment?
