(ABC 6 News) – Around 100 people gathered in Central Park in Mason City, Iowa Saturday afternoon for the third annual North Iowa Women’s Rally.

Many people from the community shared their thoughts and views as election season nears its end.

While the rally discussed many social issues, the main focus was the Supreme Court’s overturn of Roe v. Wade back in June.

Many voices spoke on the issues the country faces, including a local high school student, Mya McWilliams.

“My generation deserves better. We all deserve better. We deserve to go to school and get a quality education and not be shot while we’re there,” McWilliams, a senior at Mason City High School, said at the rally. “We deserve the right to live in a country that welcomes all of us, regardless of age, race, gender, sexual identity, class or status.”

Everyone at the rally agreed that this election may be one of the most important elections in decades, emphasizing the seriousness of voting.

“It is possible. Women make the change. They can make it and direct our society, which needs to happen,” said Katie Koehler, who helped orchestrate the rally.

It is the final stretch of election season as election day is just one month from today on Nov. 8th.
