    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been named the recipient of the 2019 John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award.

    Caroline Kennedy, the daughter of the late president, said in a statement Sunday that the California Democrat is "the most important woman in American political history."

    Pelosi is being honored because of her efforts to pass former President Barack Obama's 2010 health care law and for helping Democrats reclaim control of the U.S. House during last year's elections.

    Pelosi, who has served in the House since 1987, called the award "a great personal and official honor."
