This year, the U.S. Senate will be home to the most female senators in history. Four women were just elected, six reelected, making a total of 20 female senators in the 113th congressional session.

So who are these new ladies?

Claire McCaskill: Democratic Senator from Missouri and advocate for women’s health

Elizabeth Warren: The Harvard Law professor who drove out Republican Scott Brown in the Massachusetts Senate race after slamming him for voting against equal pay for equal work.

Tammy Baldwin: The Wisconsin senator and longtime congresswoman who is the first openly gay person in the senate.

Mazie Hirono: The Japan-born representative who is Hawaii’s first female Senator.

Those reelected include Maria Cantwell (Wash), Dianne Feinstein (Calif), Kirsten Gillibrand (NY), Amy Klobuchar (Minn), and Debbie Stabenow (Mich).

Congratulations ladies!
