Go, New Jersey!

It’s pretty self-explanatory!

New Jersey voters have elected a record 34 women lawmakers to the 120-member state legislature. Before last week’s election, women made up less than 20% of New Jersey’s state legislature. With the newly elected women, that number will jump to 28%.

New Jersey is now in 15th place in terms of female representation, along side California and Connecticut. Previously, it was in 43rd place, along side with Alabama and Mississippi.
