"I'm proud to have served as the Co-Chair of the Bipartisan Women’s Caucus in the 116th Congress with my colleague and Co-Chair Rep.

We've made significant progress in addressing the needs of women and their families, including recognizing the historic 100thAnniversary of the 19th Amendment,” said outgoing Co-Chair Rep. Brenda Lawrence. “As we enter the most diverse Congress in history with a record number of women serving in the U.S. House of Representatives, let us be reminded that our work is far from over. I stand ready to help the new leadership of the Bipartisan Women’s Caucus in the 117th Congress identify solutions that support and empower women across the country. Women must lead, and there is more that unites us than divides us. That is the beauty of the Bipartisan Women’s Caucus."
“It has been an honor to serve as Co-Chair of the Bipartisan Women’s Caucus for the 116th Congress,” said outgoing Co-Chair Rep.

“As the first woman to represent Puerto Rico in Congress, I’m honored to have been elected by my colleagues as the Women’s Caucus Republican Co-Chair, especially in these historic times with the largest number of women serving in Congress,” said incoming Co-Chair Rep. Jenniffer González-Colón. “Together we will work in a bipartisan manner to open doors for more women and girls to lead in politics and in every aspect of our society.”
“I look forward to serving alongside Reps. González-Colón, Dean, and McBath as Vice Chair of the Women’s Caucus during the 117th Congress,” said incoming Vice Chair Rep. Kat Cammack. “The caucus is critical to continuing a tradition of bipartisan collaboration that works to ensure the values of American women nationwide are represented in federal policy. I’m excited to represent the Republican women of the 117th and to get to work on these important issues over the next two years.”
Since 1977, the Congressional Caucus for Women's Issues has brought together members from both sides of the aisle to work in a bipartisan fashion to advance the policy priorities of women in Congress.
