Rep Tulsi GabbardFor the first time in history, women make up majority of the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus, reports Asian Week.  Among the many firsts in Congress this session, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (pictured here) of Hawaii is the first Hindu elected to congress and Rep Grace Meng is the first Asian American ever elected in New York.

Both sat on a panel in Washington D.C. titled “A Conversation with AAPI Women of the 113th Congress.”

“As we celebrate Women’s History Month, it’s important to acknowledge the tremendous progress that women have made,” said Rep. Judy Chu who chairs CAPAC.

“The 113th Congress is the most diverse in history, with more women and people of color than ever before. I want to thank APAICS and AARP for hosting such a great event to hear from Congresswomen Grace Meng and Tulsi Gabbard, two pioneers in the Asian Pacific American community who serve as role models for young women everywhere.”
