We're taking another look at some important women from history and present day to continue our celebration of Women's History Month. From Shirley Chisholm to Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, the contributions of these women are many and have helped pave the way for our future.
It is no secret that women have been seriously underrepresented in the history books. Photojournalist Elizabeth Herman, however, is out to change this by documenting each woman currently serving in the United States Congress.
