Dianne Feinstein was introduced to politics by an uncle who began taking her to San Francisco Board of Supervisors meetings when she was sixteen years old. She attended Stanford University where she studied history and political science while also being active in student government. She received her bachelor's degree in 1955. In 1956 she married Jack Berman, a man who would eventually become a San Francisco superior court judge. In 1961, she worked to end housing discrimination in San Francisco and then went on to work for California's Industrial Welfare Commission. In 1962 she was appointed to a four-year term on the state's Women's Board of Parole. She won election to San Francisco's Board of Supervisors in 1969 and served on the board through the 1970s. Although her career as mayor was marked by many successes, she occasionally stumbled. She was elected San Francisco's first female mayor in 1979 and became one of the nation's most visible and recognized leaders. In 1990 she ran for governor of California against Republican candidate Pete Wilson but lost by a narrow margin. She immediately changed her focus and in early 1991 announced her intention to run for Wilson's former Senate seat in the 1992 election. Along with fellow Democrat Barbara Boxer, she was elected to the Senate in 1992. The two became the first female senators ever elected in California. In 2000 she received a special recognition award from the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation for her work in support of breast cancer research and education. In 2003, she was ranked the fifth-wealthiest senator.
