In 1789, the United States Senate convened for the first time. It had no female members. Such would be the case until 1922, two years after the establishment of women’s suffrage, when Rebecca Latimer Felton was appointed to represent the people of Georgia. Her term lasted for just a single day. Today, of course, things are different. Seventeen women serve their states in the Senate. And still, in the history of this nation, there have been only 38 female senators.
