“It’s good Congress is changing to be more representative of America,” Gabbard told "Elle." She’s the youngest female lawmaker on Capitol Hill as well as the first Hindu member of Congress.
If there were as many women Republicans in Congress as there are female Democrats, “There would be a better balance and more people in the center,” said Collins.“We don’t think alike, but we do bring a different life experience and perspective. We tend to be more collaborative and problem solving.”
Capricia Marshall, the Ambassador-in-Residence at the Atlantic Council, is also featured on the list. She said that Hillary Clinton should run for president: “Woman or man, we have not had a person as qualified as her, in terms of engagement with the world. There’s no one like her.”
