Portraits of the Women of the 116th Congress @ Walter and Leonore Annenberg Theater

For the first time in American history, more than 100 women are serving in the House of Representatives. To mark this dramatic shift in women’s representation, The New York Times published photographic portraits of all the women of the 116th Congress, documenting what power looks like in 2019.

New York Times photographer Elizabeth D. Herman and Washington bureau photo editor Marisa Taylor Schwartz discuss and display the portraits and talk about capturing these remarkable women at this significant moment in our nation’s history.
