MANCHESTER - The female vote could very well decide some key races in November. One in particular - the race for Congress where incumbent democrat Annie Kuster is going against republican challenger Marilinda Garcia.
New Hampshire is a state where women voters take politics very seriously. Abortion is a huge issue for them. Equal pay for equal work is another important issue.
A new study reveals nationally women earn 82-cents for every dollar men earn, but in New Hampshire it's lower. In the Granite State it's only 77-cents on the dollar for women verses men.
That can translate to an average of $9,000 dollars less in earnings a year.
Women spoke out about the gender pay gap at a Democratic Party press conference in Manchester on Thursday.
Yvonne Nanasi of Bedford said, "These issues are important . . . when I choose who to vote for in November."
The study shows compared to the national averages, New Hampshire women hold more jobs and more women have college degrees. Still, the gender wage gap remains higher than average.
