about us

The West Virginia Women's Commission is an agency of the state government created by the Legislature in 1977. The Commission seeks to improve the legal, social, economic, educational, and political status of women by working with businesses, policy-makers, government agencies, and non-profit groups. The Women's Commission is the only state agency mandated to bring women's concerns and issues to the attention the Executive and Legislative branches of government. The commission is made up of eleven citizen members, appointed by the Governor, to serve as Commissioners for three-year terms. Seven state department heads, or designated representatives, advise and support the Commission as Ex-Officio Commissioners.
