This is a reference tool for all women and minorities who have served in state or national elected positions, updated with the results of the 2000 elections. It details which women and minority candidates succeeded in being elected or appointed in 2000 at the federal and state levels throughout the United States. Have Latinos continued to expand their elected office base? Which states were the most receptive to women office seekers? The 2001 edition is thoroughly updated in each of the major content sections on women, African-Americans, Latinos, Asian Americans Native minorities, and gay and lesbians. Who was the first African-American senator? Who was the first woman to cast a vote in the New World? Have any gays or lesbians held state-wide office? The answers to these questions are here in The 2001 Almanac of Women and Minorities in American Politics.
