Hundreds of millions of people worldwide tuned in to watch the April 29, 2011, fairytale wedding of the future King of England to a commoner. A royal wedding frenzy was set off the previous November, when the engagement of Prince William to long-time girlfriend Kate Middleton was announced. The couple met as students at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, and their eight year courtship, unusually long for a royal, earned Kate the nickname "Waity Katy" in the tabloids. The couple honeymooned in the Seychelles, and admirers around the world watched as they gave birth to the "royal baby," Geroge Alexander Louis, on July 22, 2013.

When the 19th Amendment was ratified, women were finally given the right to vote, and over the years many courageous women have stepped onto the national political stage as well. In 1916, Jeannette Rankin became the first woman elected to Congress and almost a century later Sonia Sotomayor became the first Latina woman to serve on the Supreme Court. And within the last two decades, the esteemable Hillary Clinton has served as First Lady, a New York senator and Secretary of State. These women, and many more, are setting the stage for the future of female leaders in Washington.
