Updated through the end of the 114th Congress, Women in Congress, 1917-2017 is written for a general audience and researched using primary and secondary sources. The 2017 eBook edition is based on the 2006 print edition. A revised set of essays reflects the considerable increase in the number of women in Congress during the last decade. The eBook provides readers the opportunity to link to the Women in Congress exhibition page maintained by the Office of the Historian, at http://history.house.gov/Exhibition-and-Publications/WIC/Women-in-Congress/. Readers can access there the profiles of every individual woman Member from Jeannette Rankin onward as well as up-to-date data and statistics, artifacts, and lesson plans.
