RALEIGH -- Events at the N.C. Legislature and in Durham are designed to gather women and working families to highlight what advocates call the impact of economic and social discrimination on the well-being of women in North Carolina.
The events are being held in conjunction with the observance of Women's Equality Day.
On Wednesday, workers and advocates will host a news conference with lawmakers in Raleigh to urge the General Assembly to support legislation that gives women more economic stability.
Working America state director Carolyn Smith said legislators will publicly sign onto the Women's Equality platform.
Smith said a march and rally in Durham on Friday is also designed to bring additional awareness to issues facing women in North Carolina.
