From the first female fighter pilot to the youngest woman ever elected, House Republicans seized the opportunity this Women’s History Month to celebrate the past and honored the historic number of women making history today for future generations.
As Women’s History Month drew to a close, House Republicans took to Medium.com to share their own stories, honor the modern-day trailblazers in their districts, and highlight the significant work Congress is doing to make history for the next generation of women.
“During Women’s History Month we celebrate the courageous women who blazed the trail before us,” said House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA). “But this month is also an opportunity to recognize the women of today who are making a difference, both in our districts and around the world.
“It’s an honor to serve with my Republican women colleagues, who are as diverse as the regions they represent. Each of their stories is unique and inspirational, and challenges us to think of all issues as women’s issues. Together we are focused on a bold, forward-looking agenda to restore a confident America, where every individual and family feels secure in their lives and in their futures, and where women keep making history for generations to come.”
