Representatives Louise Slaughter and Nancy Pelosi were in Seneca Falls Sunday morning to kick off a bus tour focused on fixing problems facing women in America.

The "When Women Succeed, America Succeeds: Women on a Roll" bus tour will be traveling from New York to Chicago to highlight "the need for policies that work for women." They are calling for changes to eliminate the wage gap between men and women, raising the minimum wage, paid sick leave and affordable child care.

The next stop on the bus tour will be Albany.
