Women Making History

Throughout history, women have been tenacious in the struggle for equity in society, at home, and in the executive suite. Wherever injustice existed, you can bet that women were on the case to create change from the ground up, and it may not have happened quietly. 

Since March of 1987, we have celebrated and honored the remarkable accomplishments of strong, determined women during Women’s History Month. This month in the Ally, we are turning the spotlight on women in leadership in Mississippi. Each woman featured here adds her light to the sum of all light, showing the way to a better future for all Mississippians. W.E.B. DuBois, civil rights activist, sociologist, and historian, observed that “there is no force more powerful than a woman determined to rise.”
