New York City Council
Committee on Women's Issues
The New York City Commission on Women’s Issues (formerly the Commission on the Status of Women) was established by Mayoral Executive Order in 1975 as an advisory body to the Mayor on matters impacting the lives of New York City women. Currently, the Commission serves as an important vehicle through which women and families can connect with City services that support and address their needs. The Commission is also dedicated to making a significant difference in the lives of New York City women by working with the corporate sector to establish public-private partnerships that support women’s initiatives.
