The incoming U.S. Congress will be considerably more diverse than the current one, with several firsts; 41 Latinos, including the first two Latinas from Texas, among at least 117 women, including the youngest ever elected (29), the first two Native American women and three Muslim women, one a hijab-wearing Somali refugee. House Democrats will face a vote soon on the next Speaker; Nancy Pelosi, a Catholic grandma from San Francisco and the first woman Speaker alongside President Obama, hopes to regain the gavel and the big chair.
