Women advocate for equality

Posted: Updated:
WATERLOO (KWWL) -

Women in Waterloo discussed the fight for equality Tuesday.

The event was hosted by the group Waterloo Business and Professional Women at the YWCA.

Speakers focused on several issues of equality, including unfairly low wages for women, and under-representation in politics.

"It's important because we are trying to address the discrimination that still happens based on gender," Stephanie Arensdorf, a member of the group, said.

Speakers said women have come a long way in their fight for equality, but there is still room for progress.
