The 113th congress will have 20 female senators, the most of U.S. history
Woman: At this rate, we'll have 50 by the year 2366.
Man: We'll have to add more states by then.
This toon assumes the rate of addition of women senators is linear. If it’s more exponential or logistic, we’ll be at/near parity much sooner. That’s my hope, and it’s not too unreasonable since there is a generational shift afoot.
