She Matters: Status of Women and Girls in Iowa
The Iowa Women's Leadership Council on Tuesday released its 2012 report on the status of women and girls in Iowa, "She Matters." The IWLC is a public-private partnership of women's organizations focused on supporting Iowa's women and girls. This hour, we'll discuss the new report. Previous reports have revealed that females in the state experience a greater percentage of economic disparities, diseases, disabilities, and barriers to corporate and civic leadership. Joining us in the discussion will be IWLC Ex. Director, Diane Ramsey; Terry Hernandez, Ex. Director of Chrysalis of Des Moines; and Linda Kinman, a Public Policy Analyst at the Des Moines Water Works.
