Women's political activist group comes to Dubuque Thursday

Posted: Updated:
DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

With so many smart women with a voice to be heard, why is there such a lack of female representation in political offices?

An Iowa group asks the same question and wants to see that change. The Democratic Activist Women's Network of Iowa - or DAWN's List - will meet with women in Dubuque Thursday night. The group will discuss topics such as the First Five Steps to Running, Understanding The Power Sources and Know Why You're Running.

Iowa has never had a woman represent the state at the national level. Females have held positions in the State House and State Senate, but never in Washington D.C. Currently, there are only 35 women in positions between the State House and Senate.

DAWN's List will meet with women Thursday at the Dubuque Labor Temple from 6-8 p.m. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m.
