Women’s Government Day is one of the Paul Simon Public Policy Institute’s annual initiatives, bringing women students from Southern Illinois University to the Illinois Capitol. The event promotes the contributions of women legislators and public sector leaders and is designed to encourage the continued development of women’s leadership and involvement in public affairs. Women’s Government Day serves to highlight the contribution of women to public service in Illinois and inspire women’s future engagement.
