There are currently 17 female US Senators in the 111th Congress. Although this may seem to be a significant number, history shows that it is not exactly so. There have only been 38 women total since the establishment of the Senate in 1789. Out of the 17 today 13 were appointed of which 7 were appointed to succeed their deceased husbands.

The 17 include:
