When the new Los Angeles City Council meets Tuesday for its first session, six women will have seats around the horseshoe in the chamber, the most in city history.

This year's council elections welcomed in three new women in Katy Young Yaroslavsky, Traci Park and Eunisses Hernandez. They will join Monica Rodriguez, Nithya Raman and Heather Hutt.

Rodriguez, elected in 2017, is the most senior woman on the council followed by Raman, who was elected in 2020. Hutt was appointed as an interim council member for the 10th District a few months ago.
