Are Indian-American Women Slowly Realizing Their Political Potential in the US
The future looks bright for Indian-American women, who are being sworn into multiple public offices around the country and making their voices heard.
On November 6, 2018, more than 100 women were elected to the United States House of Representatives, the American equivalent of the Lok Sabha.
The New York Times have hailed this year as the “Year of the Woman,” since an unprecedented number of women contested and won elections across the US. A record-breaking 34 new women won US House of Representative seats on Tuesday, joining 66 incumbent women who were reelected, thereby beating a previous record set in 1992.
