The newly elected women Senators and Delegates come from a variety of backgrounds and represent a national trend.
A recent article in The Washington Post gives an introduction to the group of women who were elected as senators and delegates in Maryland’s General Assembly in this year’s election.
As reported by The Washington Post, women are a majority of the senators and delegates newly elected this fall and many come with an interest in pushing legislation that improves the lives of women and families.
Wiggins quotes Delegate Sheree Sample-Hughes, a returning women legislator and President of the Women Legislators of Maryland,
“I’m very excited about the new energy,” Sample-Hughes said of the incoming lawmakers. “There is strength in having women at the table.”
