NEW YORK & WASHINGTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–SheKnows
Media
, a leading women’s media company with 91 million unique
visitors per month1 and a total reach of 269 million social
media fans, announced that it will moderate an online
Town Hall
between three GOP congresswomen today, March 2, at 10:30
a.m. ET to address the Republican Party’s 2016 and 2017 priorities.

House Republican Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA), Representative
Mimi Walters
(R-CA) and Representative Kristi Noem (R-SD)
will participate in the Town Hall, moderated by SheKnows Media
Executive Editorial Director Julie Ross Godar
. Top-line issues to be
addressed during the conversation include national security, jobs and
economic growth, poverty and the protection of the nation’s
constitutional liberties.

Questions asked of the SheKnows Media audience that were fielded
February 26-29 online will be asked of the congresswomen during the live
Town Hall, which will be livestreamed here
exclusively on SheKnows.com and BlogHer.com.

“Our vast, predominantly female audience is passionate about so many
issues that are shaping the 2016 election,” Ross Godar said.
“Based on findings from SheKnows Media’s new study called #TheFWord, we
know that border control to Affordable Care Act to same-sex marriage to
equal pay by law are top of mind for women regardless of party
affiliation. I am looking forward to moderating this Town Hall with
three GOP powerhouses who will share their perspective on these issues,
what the Republican Party is doing to resolve them, as well as shed
light on what it’s like to be a female legislator.”

Recently, SheKnows Media completed a proprietary, third-party validated
study that took the pulse on how women of all ages and ethnicities in
the United States identify with today’s feminist movement, and how that
impacts their views on a variety of issues, including the 2016
presidential election and hot-button issues like equal pay and
immigration. The full set of findings from #TheFWord survey will soon be
released in honor of Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day
on March 8.

“Women’s History Month is our opportunity to celebrate the incredible
accomplishments of women throughout our history, and to recognize those
who gave voice to a voiceless gender and inspired many generations,”
said House Republican Chair McMorris Rodgers. “For moms and
teachers, doctors and entrepreneurs across America, we care about
achieving a better life for our children’s generation. I can’t wait to
talk to those who tune into the March 2 livestream about their ideas for
our future, where every American — especially women — feel empowered to
build a bright future.”

Congresswoman Kristi Noem added, “The most lasting tribute we can
pay this month is through our effort to make history for the next
generation of women. We must remain focused on building a strong
foundation on which future trailblazers can pursue their own dreams and
keep making history. As House Republicans build an agenda to restore a
confident America, I look forward to discussing solutions for the
priorities women care about.”

“This month, we celebrate the accomplishments of women throughout our
history and seize the opportunity to keep making history for future
generations,” said Congresswoman Mimi Walters. “With women
starting businesses at an ever increasing rate, and graduating with
bachelors, masters, and doctorate degrees at a higher rate than their
peers — it’s the determination and innovation of women today that’s
going to be the foundation of a more confident America. I am excited to
hear ideas about how we can open more opportunities for all Americans.”
