National Women’s Hall of Fame To Induct Mikulski
U.S. Sen. Barbara A. Mikulski will be honored as the longest serving woman senator in American history.
"Senator Mikulski was the first Democratic woman Senator elected in her own right. On January 5, 2011, she became the longest serving woman Senator in American history," a press release stated.
"We’re here today to honor and learn from the past. The founding mothers of Seneca Falls had the passion and determination to seize the day and to make a difference. They lived and acted in the present. They understood the power of now," Mikulski stated in a release of her prepared speech.
