Barbara Boxer

Barbara Boxer (born 1940) is a liberal democrat that has been a US Senator representing California since 1993. Throughout her political career Boxer has been a vocal advocate for environmental issues and women's rights. For these reasons she is often a political target of right-wing groups.

In 1962 she graduated from Brooklyn College[?] with a degree in economics and then worked as a journalist stockbroker.

Before joining the senate she served six years on the Marin County, California Board of Supervisors which included a term as the first women president of the board. She then was elected to the United States House of Representatives and served there for 10 years.

Boxer and her husband Stewart Boxer have two children.
