Lt. Gov. Reynolds to continue “Stories of Women’s Lives” tour
Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds announced today that she will continue her “Stories of Women’s Lives” tour through the rest of 2015. Reynolds posted a video to her YouTube account this morning expanding upon this announcement.
In March, Reynolds announced her “Stories of Women’s Lives” tour to highlight Iowa women as part of Women’s History Month. She held 15 events and met with nearly 200 Iowa women from a variety of industries and backgrounds to hear their stories and discuss the obstacles that they face today, both at home and in the workplace.
The “Stories of Women’s Lives” tour received such positive feedback that Reynolds has decided to continue these meetings through the rest of this year.
“Women from all across the state responded so enthusiastically to my tour back in March that I feel it only makes sense to continue these meetings as I travel to the rest of the 99 counties,” said Reynolds. “It is absolutely critical that we work to engage present and future generations of women in our state. My hope is that through this engagement, we can create a network that will serve as a resource for women statewide.”
Reynolds will resume her “Stories of Women’s Lives” tour in Ringgold, Decatur, and Clarke counties later this month. She will continue to use the hashtag #KimTours99 during her travels across the state.
