Women are transforming the United States' most prestigious governing body. Their bi-partisan teamwork, compassion for social issues, coalition building, and unique tools for lawmaking are laying a foundation for a new type of politician. More than 30 black-and-white photographs are featured in this photo essay by photojournalist Melina Mara, who has captured unique behind-the-scenes images of 1 former and 13 current women senators at work on Capitol Hill.
