 WASHINGTON, DC – Congresswoman Lois Frankel (FL-21), Chair of the Democratic Women’s Working Group (DWWG), made the following statement regarding the midterm election, where a record-breaking number of women were elected to the U.S. Congress.

“Congratulations and a warm welcome to at least 35 Democratic women newly elected to Congress. From veterans, medical professionals, attorneys, CIA officers, and teachers – our caucus is expanding to include an even more diverse and impressive group of women. With these fresh faces and the majority, I look forward to working together to fight for women and families on issues like affordable health care and child care, and equality in the workplace with equal pay, paid family and medical leave, and strong policies to combat workplace harassment.”
