Nancy Pelosi has announced she is stepping down from the House Democratic leadership, a position she held for nearly two decades.

The 82-year-old woman is the most powerful Democratic member of Congress, and is the first woman to hold the position of Speaker of the House of Representatives.

Pelosi will continue to represent her California district in the House of Representatives.

The move comes at a time when the Republicans are back in control of the House, in the wake of the midterm elections.
