The Howard County Commission for Women was established by statute in 1980 to promote the economic, social and political equality of women. The Commission has the authority to conduct studies, review progress, recommend action, and carry out activities to support this purpose. This may include:
As women across the nation are breaking barriers and making history, the Commission was excited to present the results of the 'So She Did' campaign in March during National Women's History Month. Twenty women were recognized for their contributions to the Howard County community through their professional work, volunteerism, or advocacy efforts.
