A woman's place is in the House and the Senate. That was one Tennessee candidate's campaign slogan in the mid 1970's.
FOX's Jane Metzler takes a look at some legendary female lawmakers on this, the start of Women's History Month:
100 years ago, Suffragette Jeanette Rankin took the oath of office to represent Montana in the House of Representatives, saying I may be the first woman member of Congress, but I won't be the last. The Republican, a legislative force behind the 19th Amendment, which gave American women the right to vote in 1920:
(Abzug) "There is not even one woman among the 100 U.S. Senators."
Known for more than her trademark hats, Battlin' Bella Abzug one of roughly only a dozen women in Congress at the start of the 70's.
Among other legislation, Abzug co-sponsored Title 9 and a bill allowing single women to get credit. The co-founder of the National Women's Political Caucus would be pleased to see 104 Congresswomen and 21 female Senators on Capitol HIll today.
