Historical NoteReturn to Top

The Seattle Women's Commission was established in 1970 to provide advice to the Mayor, City Council, and other departments regarding women's issues. The Commission's mission is to establish goals, priorities, and immediate action objectives in alleviating discrimination against women. The Commission originally gave direction to the Seattle Women's Division of the Office of Human Resources in the Executive Department. A reorganization in 1973 created the Office of Women's Rights which provided staff and support for the Commission until OWR was abolished. The Office of Civil Rights now provides staff and support to the Commission.
