Several guest speakers were there promoting participation and voice for women in the education field, health care, and government. State Senator Joyce Elliott says women need to know how they fit into these big institutions.
"The most important thing about this for us is women hold up as the saying goes, half the sky. And they'll be much more capable of doing that when we start having more women in the boardroom and more women in politics and have women make the salaries men are making," says State Sen. Joyce Elliot.
A Walmart representative was also on hand today discussing high level job opportunities at the Arkansas-based retailer.
