After the November election, some female senators reported that there were traffic jams in the Senate women's bathroom, which only has two stalls, for the first time. It was less of a gripe than a cause for celebration; women currently make up a fifth of the entire Senate, a historically unprecedented ratio. But jubilation can only go so far when you really need to pee, which is why the renovations are underway and should be completed after the August recess.
