This column recalls the earliest women to serve in the House and Senate (although the 1922 tenure of Senator Rebecca Latimer Felton was oddly excluded):

"In 1916, the first Congresswoman was elected. She was Miss Jeannette Rankin (1880 - 1973), a Republican from Montana. On her first day in the House, war was declared; she voted against it. The next Congress had no women.... Only one woman, however, has been elected to the U.S. Senate. She is Mrs. Hattie W. Caraway (1878 - 1950), a Democrat, first appointed in 1931 to fill Senator Thaddeus Caraway's place, and re-elected two weeks ago for the second term."
