Republicans do not like to elect women.
Stats of note:
GOP women make up only 4% of the current Congress.
12% are female Congressional Democrats -- for a total of 16.5% vs. 83.5% male legislators.
As a percentage of the historical collection of Congress members over all time, women have comprised only 1.7% of the total.
Women need more representation across the board! Let's do this, America.
P.S. If you have any need for a Slack bot that returns data on sitting Congresspeople, look no further! You can install this bot in Slack easily; you'll just need to set up a Fieldbook account
