    There are 50 states in America and currently, six of them are governed by women: Oregon, Oklahoma, South Carolina, New Hampshire, New Mexico, and Rhode Island. If you thought the scales may be tipped to one political party or the other, you are wrong. It is exactly even distribution amongst the Democrats and the Republicans with Kate Brown, Maggie Hassan, and Gina Ralmondo, going Blue and Mary Fallin, Nikki Haley, and Susana Martinez, swinging Red. Way to go, ladies! Source: The Center for American Women and Politics
