If you checked out the New York Times Thursday, you might have seen Georgia Congresswoman Lucy McBath on one of its special covers.

The newspaper's website posted photos of all the women of the 116th Congress.

"Just over a century ago, Jeannette Rankin of Montana won a seat in the House of Representatives, becoming the first woman ever elected to federal office. In 1917, 128 years after the first United States Congress convened, she was sworn into its 65th session," the New York Times said. "One hundred and two years later, one has become 131 — the number of women serving in both chambers of the 116th Congress as of this month."

Others took to social media commenting on the special covers.

McBath's son, Jordan Davis, was gunned down by another man on Nov. 23, 2012, in Jacksonville, Florida as he and friends sat in an SUV in a gas station parking lot.

Michael Dunn pulled up next to Davis and complained about loud rap music coming from their vehicle. After a brief argument, Dunn opened fire killing Davis. He was convicted two years later and sentenced to life in prison.

McBath is also a co-sponsor of the legislation.
