With less than three weeks until voters head to the polls, both presidential campaigns have intensified their push to reach undecided women.
Republican candidate Mitt Romney's camp has released a new ad to answer Democrats claims about his positions on contraception and abortion.
Polls show President Obama has an advantage among women voters, but Romney has narrowed the gap.
In Iowa Wednesday, the president touted his equal pay legislation and criticized Romney for not supporting it.
"When young women graduate, they should get equal pay for equal work. That should be a simple question to answer. When Governor Romney was asked about it, he, his campaign said, we'll get back to you," Obama said.
Meanwhile in Virginia, Romney outlined how women have suffered under the president's administration and how he would do more to help them.
"Why is it that there are 3.6 million more women in poverty today than when the president took office? This president has failed America's women," the ad says.
Both candidates will make stops in New York today.
