Washington (CNN) - Pelosi may have "shattered the marble ceiling" as the first female House Speaker, but incoming Republican House Speaker John Boehner has decided to create equal bathroom access for female members of Congress.
According to an announcement from the GOP transition team, the woman's restroom will be adjacent to the House floor to accommodate the 71 female members in the next Congress, something current female members live without.
"As we continue to evaluate ways to open up the people's House, it's encouraging to be able to make changes like this that are long overdue," Boehner said in the statement.
A similar facility was constructed adjacent to the Senate chamber in 1993. The restroom will replace the space used by the Office of the Parliamentarian.
