MWESI hosts impactful 2019 Day at the Capitol

Check out video highlights from our amazing and impactful 2019 MWESI Day at the Capitol. 

Our day included a press conference to discuss statewide issues impacting Mississippi women’s economic security – such as wage discrimination, healthcare, education and paid leave – along with the associated legislation.  

One of our featured speakers was also a Jackson, MS mother of three who successfully sued her employer in 2011 for sex discrimination after learning she was doing many of the same duties as males at her job, but for lower pay.
