You probably recognized some of the women in the slide, but in case you missed a couple, here are six political trailblazers we're highlighting in honor of Women’s History Month!

Senator-elect Becca Balint from Windham county is the first openly lesbian women to win a Senate seat in VT and Representative-elect Kiah Morris is the first African-American woman elected to the House in over 25 years.

Emerge Vermont is changing the face of Vermont politics by identifying, training and encouraging women to run for office, get elected and to seek higher office. Our intensive, cohort-based six-month training program is unique. As the number of elected Democratic women remains flat or even declines, the need for our work is growing.
