QUIZ: Can you name any of the newly elected United States congresswomen and why not?

The United States government has just sworn in their new congress, a group that is made up of most diverse representatives in United States history. While you seem to be happy with what has been a historical win for the representation of both women and people of colour in the United States, do you even know the names of the extremely hardworking newly appointed congresswomen who are trying to make a positive change? Are you paying attention to the part of society that is slowly trying to better itself or are you complicit in the apathy of modern life? Let’s find out!

6. Ayana Pressley is the first black woman to serve as Massachusetts representative. When was the last time you really looked in the mirror and thought you were making a difference in the world?

Congratulations! To the newly sworn in congresswomen! As for you, you did awful.
We get it, names are hard, but running for Congress as someone from a marginalized community is harder. Let’s celebrate these individuals and maybe someday someone will write a Tony award-winning hip hop musical about their lives.
