But Long Island pre-K teacher Katherine Fenton says neither candidate really gave a good response to her question.
"My question was, 'What do you intend to do about the issue?.' They talked about what they have done, but that wasn't my question," the 24-year-old told Newsday.
"I was grateful to hear that they have done good things to help qualified women in the workforce," she said. "But I wanted to know their future plans."
Speaking with Andrea Mitchell on MSNBC, Fenton said the debate left her as undecided as ever.
"You know, I still find that I'm undecided because I was so grateful for that opportunity yesterday and I heard a lot of really wonderful responses and points but at the same time, a lot of the questions were kind of danced around more than answered explicitly," she said. "So, like, I can't say I've come out with a preference for either side."
Fenton did, however, give the edge to President Obama, saying Mitt Romney appeared more prepared "but a little more rattled."
