Governor Appointed Nevada Commission For Women
After nearly two decades of inactivity, on October 27, 2014 the Sunset Subcommittee of the Interim Legislative Commission recommended to Governor Brian Sandoval that he reactivate the Commission For Women, appoint new members and charge them with a mission relevant to today's society and economy. The Governor supported the recommendation and the Legislature approved the reactivation of the Commission For Women by passing NRS 233I. The Commission For Women is comprised of 10 members reflecting the diversity of the State, as well as balanced political party representation. The Commission is charged with the duty to study the changing and developing roles of women in society, including the recognition of socioeconomic factors that influence the status of women, and recommend proposed legislation. Staff support is provided to the Commission by the Department of Administration.
Nevada Commission for Women's mission is to advance women toward full equality in all areas.
