Sen. Mazie K. Hirono is among 46 women featured in TIME Magazine’s FIRSTS series of “women who are changing the world.” The project is published online, as a book, and will also be featured in the Sept. 18, 2017, issue of TIME magazine.

“Women are problem solvers,” Sen. Hirono said in the feature. “The women of the Senate get together on a regular basis. I think it’s because women are not as ego-involved in terms of how to get things done. None of us is namby-pamby. We have different approaches, but I believe that women are very effective in what we do and in our ability to keep the lines of communication open.”

Other women featured in TIME’s FIRSTS series include Hillary Clinton, Oprah Winfrey, Madeleine Albright and Serena Williams.
