Plotting the number of women in the US congress

10 Nov

I wrote a simple python script to plot the number of women in congress and used it in my intro CS class this week. Two reasons:

1. That jump in 2019 is so good!!! This is helping me get over 2016.

2. We shouldn’t have to choose between activism and science.

Data from wikipedia on Nov 10th (numbers may still change when final races are called).

If anyone has similar data for the number of people of color in congress, I would like to plot that too!
