A Record Number of Women

The Congressional Research Service recently published a report, Membership of the 113th Congress: A Profile.

If you love compiled data (and who doesn't!), you will enjoy this brief (nine pages) but informative report with highlights such as:
  • 100 women - a record - serve in the 113th Congress
  • 169 Members of the House and 57 Senators have law degrees
The section on "Occupations" might be my favorite. (Do you know which House Member was a professional football player? Hint: Philadelphia Eagles.)
