TO RECOGNIZE MARCH 19, 2018 AS "WOMEN IN PUBLIC OFFICE DAY" IN SOUTH CAROLINA.
Whereas, the month of March is Women's History Month and celebrates the significant contributions that women of all races, ethnicities, and backgrounds have made to the world; and
Whereas, women play a critical role in the vitality and diversity of our communities and are essential to ensuring that South Carolina is well represented; and
Whereas, while the twentieth century was a pivotal time of growth for women entering politics, women remain underrepresented in male-dominated fields, and providing opportunities to support women in public office is imperative; and
Whereas, recognizing women in public office will bring awareness to the fundamental necessity of their work and inspire other young women to serve their communities; and
Whereas, it is fitting to celebrate and call upon the people of South Carolina to unite as we support the success of women in public office. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:
That the members of the South Carolina General Assembly, by this resolution, recognize March 19, 2018 as "Women in Public Office Day" in South Carolina.
