Young women from high schools throughout Vermont made their voices heard Tuesday.
Vermont Works For Women recently conducted a study of students titled "Enough Said" to find out what young women find most challenging on everything from finances to higher education. Tuesday, those participants gathered to share their views on what they hope to see done to uplift Vermont girls and women.
"I really think that we need to make more of an effort to get girls and women more interested in careers that they wouldn't traditionally consider," said Anna Lee Beaulieu, a listening session participant.
"We are going to take these issues and fix them so that young women my age and older can figure out how to progress with their lives and their careers. It's just really exciting for me," said Amanda Preston, a listening session participant.
More than 25 Vermont businesses and community leaders have committed to help provide these skills for young women.
