At the turn of the 20th century, women in the United States could not vote. A political party promoted National Women's Day as a day to protest for women's rights, particularly the right to vote. On February 23, 1909, over 2,000 men and women attended the first National Women's Day rally in New York. The success of the event inspired other countries to participate, and National Women's Day became International Women's Day in 1911.

We offer Project Lead South Carolina, a series for young women about what it takes to be a leader.  


From middle school to high school, teenage girls face unique pressures everyday. Between issues with bullying, body image, boys, friends and “frenemies,” life during that awkward transitional period can feel like it’s filled with challenges. It’s important our girls have role models, people to look up to, think about, and speak with to help navigate those land mines.

Notable women in South Carolina give advice on what makes a successful leader.
