Women's political representation in the U.S. has always fallen far below that of men. Did you know out of 535 seats in Congress, women hold only 99 of those seats, making us a tiny 18 percent of Congress? And when it comes to Latinas, these numbers lag even further behind.

Congrats lovelies, it's Women's Equality Day! Today marks the 93rd anniversary of the passing of the 19th amendment, which back in 1920 granted women the right to vote in US elections.
