That’s right, during this midterm election cycle, a record number of women won seats in Congress and helped Democrats take control of the House for the first time in eight years.

In addition to record amounts of women running and winning, 244 LGBTQ candidates ran for government office and one-third of candidates that ran for the House were women of color.
