The Congressional Caucus for Women’s Issues at 25: Challenges and Opportunities

  • Cynthia A. Hall

Abstract

Founded in 1977, the Congressional Caucus for Women’s Issues turns 25 in 2002. Its members, both past and present, have much to celebrate. Over the past quarter-century, the caucus has led a number of successful efforts to achieve economic, educational, and health equity for women. Some of its most significant legislative achievements have come after many years of work, while other smaller, incremental changes also have led to progress in a number of areas.
