The Wing tweeted that a poll of its members from the summer found that 90 percent were in favor of inviting male presidential candidates.

“We believe we have the power to drive a conversation that centers women’s issues that so often get left out of the debates - including reproductive rights, childcare, and equal pay,” the company wrote.

It will be the first of many town halls with candidates, and each will be moderated by a “distinguished” woman, according to The Wing.

In a campaign plan released in May, Booker pledged to create a White House office solely focused on expanding access to abortion and addressing barriers to reproductive health care.
