McKenna Donegan is a research intern with RepresentWomen from Syracuse, New York. She is a Political Science major with a Pre-Law certificate at Siena College. Books like A Seat at The Table: Congresswomen's Perspectives on Why Their Presence Matters by Kelly Dittmar, Kira Sanbonmatsu, and Susan J. Carroll, sparked in her interest in women's representation in politics. She got involved with RepresentWomen because she was interested in researching the institutional barriers that prevent women from running for Congress.

In her free time, McKenna enjoys reading and exploring all that DC has to offer.
