A recent survey claimed to show what women are most concerned about heading into the 2020 election.

YWCA USA CEO Alejandra Castillo said the third national "YWomenVote" survey shows women are united in calling for solutions to pressing problems.

"For example, health and well-being--comprehensive healthcare coverage for pre-existing conditions in particular, what's happening in the workplace with regards to harassment and discrimination, and looking at what are the policies there," said Castillo.

Castillo called the survey "inclusive," but noted it's racially weighted.

"This survey over-sampled, or what we like to say, accurately sampled women of color--African-American, Latinas, AAPI, Native Americans--but we also very intentionally included the voices of Gen Z's and rural women, so that's the beauty of this survey," said Castillo.

Castillo said other issues respondents said were important include the economy, pay equity, preventing domestic and gun violence, and protecting the environment.
