So, with this incredible panel… All of them will answer an easy question I'm going to pose.Then we will go one by one and have a primary answerer for the next four questions.After which we want to open it up and have communication and dialogue with all of you.So, the first easy question is, given your work, what do you believe is the greatest barrier to women's economic security?And the first brave soul to take that… will be Roma.
Roma Guy:
In order to do that, part of our movement, Roma, needs to make sure we are electing more women to public office.
Roma Guy:
Roma, what can be done to reduce the economic divide between the wealthiest and poorest segments of California's population?
Roma Guy:
Okay, Roma, you're wrong.
