The future is female in the California Senate

State Sen. Nancy Skinner, who leads the Women’s Caucus, said she was relieved to know that a large and diverse group of women will follow her generation of outgoing senators, which includes former Senate President Pro Tem Toni Atkins and state Sen. Susan Eggman.

At the same time, Skinner said the caucus isn’t taking any gains for granted — and noted that California has seen a loss of representation at other levels of government. Next year, the state won’t send any women to the U.S. Senate for the first time in more than 30 years.

“This is a great accomplishment,” she said about more women being elected to the statehouse. “But we want the same thing in the boardroom, in the CEO position, in the governorship, in the presidency.”
