Hi Teen Resisters! We wanted to start out this week by congratulating you all on the incredible event that was November 7th's election day. Democrats swept the country and we saw the roots of a revolution bud. Especially in Virginia- a state we focused on in recent lists, the elections turnout was amazing. We were particularly excited about our two featured candidates, Danica Roem and Jennifer Carroll Foy getting elected. Danica was the first transgender legislator ever elected, and Jennifer, who was one of the first women to graduate from Virginia Military Institute, gave birth to twins soon after the election. More amazing candidates swept the country, and this was only a local election year. We are so excited for 2018 midterm elections! Before we hop in, we wanted to share a beautiful piece of art portraying some of the amazing new female legislators who were elected (especially because this week's list unfortunately features lots of corrupted, sexist, white male politicians).
