Marguerite Willis Statement on International Women’s Day
March 8, 2018
SOUTH CAROLINA — Marguerite Willis releases the following statement on International Women’s Day, celebrated every year on March 8:
“This past year, countless women said ‘time’s up’ to a corrupt system that abuses their trust and demands their silence. This is only the beginning. If American women and men are going to make equal strides moving forward, then we’ve got to ensure that they’re treated fairly under the law and by their employers. That starts right here in South Carolina, where we have our work cut out for all of us.”
A recent report found that South Carolina ranks near the bottom nationally in terms of health care, education and income for women.
