A HOUSE RESOLUTION

TO PROCLAIM MARCH 19, 2019, AS "CELEBRATING WOMEN IN PUBLIC SERVICE DAY" IN SOUTH CAROLINA AND CALL UPON THE PEOPLE OF THE PALMETTO STATE TO UNITE AS WE SUPPORT THE SUCCESS OF WOMEN IN PUBLIC OFFICE.

Whereas, the month of March is Women's History Month and celebrates the significant contributions 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 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 thus, 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 will inspire other young people to serve their communities. Now, therefore,

Be it resolved by the House of Representatives:

That the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives, by this resolution, proclaim March 19th, 2019, as "Celebrating Women in Public Office Day" in South Carolina and call upon the people of the Palmetto State to unite as we support the success of women in public office.
