Congresswoman Lois Frankel (FL-22) has been elected Vice Chair of the Congressional Women’s Caucus for the 114th Congress. She will be sworn in today with other newly elected leadership of the Caucus.

“For more than 30 years, the Women’s Caucus has championed women’s issues in our country and around the globe – putting aside partisanship and embracing collaboration,” said Congresswoman Frankel. “I look forward to working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to improve the lives of women and families.”

Reps. Kristi Noem (R-SD) and Doris O. Matsui (D-CA) will serve as Co-Chairs. Rep. Susan Brooks (R-IN) will be the Republican counterpart to Congresswoman Frankel, both serving as Vice Chairs.

Founded in 1977, the Congressional Women’s Caucus has been a leading advocate on issues advancing the lives of women and families. Caucus members have helped pass legislation on tougher child support enforcement, promoting women’s health, helping women business owners, and protecting victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.
