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, we're excited to present the results of the 'So She Did' campaign - an initiative designed to recognize greatness throughout our county. In lieu of our annual Women’s Hall of Fame, which reached its conclusion with the 40th anniversary of the Commission for Women in 2020, this campaign will expand our goal of building political, social, and economic equality for all residents. This month, during National Women's History Month, the commission will profile women who are promoting positive change through their professional work, volunteerism, or advocacy efforts in Howard County. View the profiles on the commission's Facebook page.
