Percentage of NJ legislators who are women

A total of 36 women (26 Democrats, 10 Republicans) were sworn in as members of the New Jersey Legislature yesterday, which means 30 percent of all legislators are now women. And half of New Jersey’s women legislators (18) are women of color: nine are black and nine are Latinas. They are all Democrats.
