House Leader Nancy Pelosi was in Austin today with one central message: There’s still work to be done on women’s equality in the workforce. 

She spoke at Austin Community College’s Eastview Campus Monday. Her visit comes on the anniversary of the Nineteenth Amendment, which guarantees women the right to vote. It was adopted into the U.S. Constitution on Aug. 26, 1920.
