PLEASANTVILLE -

More woman are taking leadership roles in the U.S., and the change is happening locally at Pace University as well.

News 12 sat down with students at Pace University's Pleasantville campus who were elected to the first all-female student government.

Student government advisor Shawn Livingston says the group brings a different perspective.

"They are constantly navigating the collegiate system to find ways to make it more efficient to shine,” says Livingston.

The students say it’s important to have more women step into leadership roles, and that diversity matters.
