19 Records Broken By Women In 2019 (So Far)
First State To Have Women Hold A Majority Of Legislative Seats
It was only a matter of time, God willing, before there was a state with mostly women in the state legislature, but I never would have guessed Nevada would get there first. 32 of Nevada’s 63 seats (so 50.8 percent) are held by women, and their Assembly chamber is majority-female as well with 23 of the 42 seats being held by women. In 2016, Nevada was also the first state to elect a Latina woman to the Senate. Looks like there’s more to the Silver State than 24-hour casinos and legal sex work.
