Two days before the nation's first presidential primary in New Hampshire, a non-partisan forum co-sponsored by Lifetime Television and ABC News/Good Morning America, was held at Dartmouth. Titled "Every Woman Counts 2004 Democratic Presidential Candidates Forum," this was the first forum of the election year to focus exclusively on women's issues.

  • This event marked the first time candidates met to address a predetermined theme. Among the issues discussed were childcare, educational opportunity, women in the workforce, and women's health.
  • 52 percent of voters in the 2000 election were women.
  • At the time of the forum, 40 percent of New Hampshire women said they were still trying to decide on a candidate.
  • The three candidates all agreed that the Bush administration had kept women from reaching equality on an array of levels.
