CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - Supporters of Natalie Tennant gathered in Charles Town, W.V. for a special reason Tuesday.  U.S. Senate candidate Natalie Tennant rallied female supporters in honor of National Women's Day.

Even the first women to hold statewide office as West Virginians in 1957 attended the event to show support. Tennant spoke about equal pay for equal work and raising the minimum wage. 

She also visited Shepherdstown to address the same issues.

When asked about the significance of the day, Tennant said, "we are celebrating Women's Equality Day, which celebrates the right for women to vote back in 1920. Today is important because women represent 51 percent of the vote.”

The last day to register to vote is October 14th.
