51% of Mississippians are women, yet only 14% of Mississippi legislators are women.

Women – especially young women – have been missing from the playing field in politics, government, and enterprise in Mississippi. It is time for young Mississippians to help bring those voices – our voices – to policy and problem-solving. We deserve a government that represents and looks like all of Mississippi.

Inspire, Nurture, Support, Become

We can end the systemic under-representation of women leaders by inspiring, nurturing, supporting, and becoming young women in leadership roles. We have the chance to support and become emerging female leaders who have less fear, more energy, and an enduring capacity to create opportunities that end disparities for women and others.
