Welcome to the website of the Florida Commission on the Status of Women!

We hope that you find the events, resources, and opportunities posted on our site valuable. We try to maintain up-to-date listings to stay current with the many activities and resources for and about women in Florida.

The Commission was established by the Florida Legislature in 1991 with the mission of empowering women in achieving their fullest potential, to eliminating barriers to that achievement, and to recognizing women's accomplishments. This highly talented group of individuals comes together as volunteers to research, analyze and make recommendations to the Governor, Cabinet and Legislature, on issues facing women and families in Florida.

We meet quarterly as a full Commission, and more frequently as committees to address a broad range of issues. These include: economic opportunity for women, women's health women's role as care-givers, violence against women, and the unique challenges women face in our state. Women juggle many daily responsibilities, and the Commission can serve as a valuable informational resource. We work with a variety of topics - from questions on starting a business and personal finance to womenís health.

Members of the public are welcome to attend our Commission meetings and events. We encourage all who are interested in issues facing women in Florida contact us with questions and ideas.

Thank you for visiting the Commissionís website. For more information, please contact the Florida Commission on the Status of Women at (850)414-3300.
