What do you want to ask GOP women in Congress? We'll share your questions in an online Town Hall hosted by SheKnows

Recently, SheKnows Media commissioned a national study of women's feelings about feminism and several other issues, which we'll release later this month.

One result didn't surprise me at all: We care passionately about the issues that are shaping the 2016 election. Our concerns range from border control to Obamacare to same-sex marriage, and equal pay by law topped the list of issues that women support on both sides of the aisle.

On Wednesday, March 2, at 10:30 a.m. ET, SheKnows Media will moderate an online Town Hall with three Republican congresswomen in Washington, D.C. As the executive editorial director for SheKnows and BlogHer, I'll be leading the conversation.

Joining us at the Town Hall are three powerful legislators: Rep. Cathy McMorris-Rodgers (R-WA), Rep. Mimi Walters (R-CA) and Rep. Kristi Noem (R-SD).

Your questions, stories and issues will power this conversation. We'll bring your concerns about your health, your job, your family, your future and the future of the United States to the table, and we'll be asking for answers. We'll livestream the conversation on and

I expect the representatives to answer your questions, share their own opinions as women in Congress, and talk about the work they're doing on the five issues they see as priorities for 2016-17: Jobs and economic growth, poverty and opportunity, health care, national security and constitutional authority.

We're looking for questions from all political perspectives. SheKnows is committed to empowering EVERYONE in our community as voters, and we're proud to moderate this special opportunity to speak with Republican legislators, just as we were to host the Obama Town Hall last year.

Share your question in the survey below by 3 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on Monday, Feb. 29. (Click here to take the survey if you're on a mobile device.) And stay tuned for more information about the livestreamed Town Hall meeting on March 2!

Need some thought starters for your question? Think about these:

What do you think should be a top legislative priority for Congress? What do you want to know about how these leaders have voted in the past and what they plan to do in the coming session? Do you wonder what it's like to be a female legislator?

Are you interested in the Supreme Court replacement process or the representatives' views on the election?

And what about your own story? Has health care been a huge issue impacting your life? What struggles are you facing each day? What do you think the government could do to help you personally?
