Everyone knows Congress isn't remotely gender-equal. Women make up just over 19 percent of members of Congress. And that male-heavy population of lawmakers isn't very good about finding women to talk to them, either.
According to data compiled by the Sunlight Foundation, women made up only 23 percent of the nearly 5,600 witnesses who either have testified before or were scheduled to testify before members of the House during the current session. (Sunlight only used data on the House, as Senate data is not easily available.)
Though the ratios vary, no House committee had an equal number of male and female witnesses. That means neither members of Congress nor the people they're inviting to testify before their committees reflect the gender balance of the country.
