Iowa’s Lt. Governor To Tour State On Behalf of Women
DES MOINES, Iowa–Webster City, Aldin and Atlantic are the cities released so far for Iowa Lt. Governor Kim Reynolds statewide tour to celebrate women’s history month in March, her office announced Monday. Reynolds trips are called “Stories of Women’s Lives Tour,” which she said will highlight how women positively impact the state.
“With this tour, we really hope to begin to connect the dots and build a network of women who are, again, positively impacting Iowa with their actions, their ideas and their ingenuity,” Reynolds said during the administration’s weekly Monday morning news conference.
The administration will use the hashtag #KimTours99 to represent the event on Twitter. The 99 represents the number of counties in the state.
Reynolds tweeted a picture for the morning’s announcement.
Renee Hardman joined Reynolds for the announcement. Hardman, of West Des Moines, started her own human resources consulting firm. Hardman, who said she was raised by a single mother, said the tour will emphasize the importance of strong female role models for other women. “Our life is not measured by the jobs we have of the money we have in the bank…but by the lives we’ve touched and the impact that we’ve made in helping another woman or person reach their fullest potential,” Hardman said.
