Mikulski to Become Longest Serving Female Senator

ABC News reports that, when the Senate convenes next month for a new Congress, Senator Barbara Mikulski (D-MD) will become “the longest serving woman senator in U.S. history.”

At noon on Wednesday, Jan. 5th, a new Congress will be sworn in. At that very moment, a feisty, powerful, 4 foot 11 inches, 74-year-old woman, Barbara Mikulski, will become the longest serving woman senator in U.S. history, eclipsing Margaret Chase Smith by two days.

When she “arrived in the Senate, Mikulski was the 16th woman in all of American history to serve.”

Today, there are 17 female senators.
