Newly Elected Congresswomen Hanging Out at 'Freshman Orientation'
The newest congresswomen are #SquadGoals.
As a record number of women prepare to take their seats on Capitol Hill, some were seen hanging during their “freshman orientation” and people are all about the new dream team.
@Faiza_N_Ali tweeted, “Now this is what will be the topic of thanksgiving dinner at my house, the power of women of color in shaping the future of this country.”
@Kumarraonyc tweeted, “Ok, who else is looking forward to this new wave and next generation of progressive leadership in Congress.”
@vanityguptacr tweeted, “Inspired. This is what democracy looks like!”
Many of the women won major firsts in the midterms. Deb Haaland and Sharice Davids are the first Native American congresswomen, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib are the first Muslim U.S. congresswomen, Ayanna Pressley is the first Black woman to represent Massachusetts in Congress, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will be the youngest woman to serve in the House.
And these women say they’re ready to take charge when their first legislative session begins on January 30, 2019.
“#DreamTeam in Congress. Going to hit the ground running fighting for #JusticeforAll,” Tlaib stated on Instagram.
