U.S. Senate 25 women total 17 Democrat women and only 8 Republican women, 25% of 100 seats are women U.S. House 102 women total 89 Democrat and a pitifully low only 13 Republican women, 23.4% of 435 seats are women https://www.cawp.rutgers.edu/current-numbers Racial diversity The contrast is even greater for racial diversity. Democrats have nearly six times more minority members than the Republicans. African-American 48 Democrats and 3 Republicans Hispanic/Latino 30 Democrats and 13 Republicans Asian/Indian/Pacific Islander 16 Democrats and 0 Republicans Total 94 Democrats and 16 Republicans are minorities Diversity in Congress: Democrats have women and minorities, Republicans have white men over 55? So right now, Republicans in congress are the party of over 55 white male and Democrats are the party of the young, women, and minorities. (The young and old thing I just kind of threw that in as a bonus bit of a troll.) Full disclosure here: I'm a Democrat that is a 67 year old white male and proud of the diversity in the party. It can and will get better but not to bad for now. Exciting times!
