In 2018, this inspiring freshman class of women is redefining what it means to thrive in Washington. They’re not trying to pass as something they’re not or to act like they’ve been here before. And by sharing their experiences, in real and honest ways on social media, these women, many of whom represent historic firsts, are opening doors to help ensure they aren’t the last.

Although we are still miles away from where we should be, things like this show we1 are taking steps to being a country where the diverse population can truly be represented by their peers. Hoping 2020 can provide even more stories like this.

  1. half of the country, at least.
