Congress Is Not Just For Old White Men - Moms Can Serve Too

Featured Member Post

So far, the average age of a woman in public office is 51, because she’s waited until her children are grown. I want women not to wait – you can run and win and serve with kids at home, even young kids. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand has two little boys. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers has given birth three times while in Congress! It’s not easy – but being a mom is never easy. Being a mom in public office at least puts you in a position to make it better.

'Til next time,

Your (Wo)Man in Washington
