Record Amount of Women Enter Congress - Chad Tepper and CPL Discuss


Following the elections, a record amount of women have been elected to seats in the House of Representatives. Women, who have never held more than 84 of the 435 seats in Congress now occupy more than 100 of them, and included in the historic and diverse group elected are two of the youngest ever elected (Democrats Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, and Abby Finkenauer of Iowa.)

They include two of the first Native American women elected (Democrat Debra Haaland of New Mexico and, Democrat and openly gay congresswoman Sharice Davids of Kansas) and two of the first Muslim women elected at a national level: Ill-han Omar of Minnesota and Rashida Telayb of Michigan. Democrats Veronica Escobar of Texas and Sylvia Garcia of Houston are their state's first Latina representatives. Other monumental shifts include Massachusetts Democrat, Ayanna Pressley, and Democrat Jahana Hayes of Connecticut, who are their respective state’s first African American Congress women. It has been noted that many of the women elected favored the Democratic party, pushing key issues like affordable healthcare, a more protected environment and a determination to create more inclusion and prevent further division among Americans.

Here to discuss the historical influx of democratic women are Shira, Lazar, Ryan Mitchell, and special guest, actor and artist Chad Tepper, who can be seen on MTV's Too Stupid To Die, Fridays at 9:30 PM, and can be heard on his new EPs XXX, Weekend, Skateboard, NADA, Malibu and Ain't Hit.
