A Nebraska state senator says it's time to talk about women and the workforce.

Amanda McGill is hosting three town hall meetings to talk with Nebraska women about the wage gap issue, which stems from a legislative resolution she introduced earlier this year.

McGill said she's concerned about income disparity between men and women in Nebraska, but there are other topics she wants to address at the meetings, too.

Women at the town hall meetings will be asked to share their own experiences in juggling work and family life, building self confidence, and why they did or did not go into professions in the math and science fields.

The first meeting will be Tuesday, Oct. 15 at the Security National Bank in Omaha. On Wednesday, the senator will be at the YWCA in Grand Island from 6-8 p.m., and the final town hall meeting is Thursday, Oct. 24 in Lincoln.
