The first woman elected to the senate was Hattie Wyatt Caroway of Arkansas. She was appointed to replace her husband, Senator Thaddeus Caroway, who died in office. She then ran for re-election in 1932, making her the first woman to be elected to office. The first woman to serve as a senator was Rebecca Latimer Felton of Georgia, who served for just 1 day in 1922 after her husband died in office.
