Woman Crush Wednesday: Tammy Duckworth

Today's #womancrushwednesday is Senator Tammy Duckworth, mom of two, Veteran, and the first woman to ever give birth while holding a senate seat. Senator Duckworth famously brought her newborn baby with her to the senate floor because she was nursing and couldn't leave her to cast her vote. Proof that moms get stuff done!

From @romper "As one of only 22 women in the Senate, Duckworth is in a unique position. When she released a statement about her most recent pregnancy, she took the opportunity to remind everyone that lots of parents, both men and women, are out there getting things done every day. “Parenthood isn’t just a women’s issue,” Duckworth said in a statement on Monday, according to NBC News. “It’s an economic issue and one that affects all parents – men and women alike."
