Mayor's Commission on the Status of Women

The Mayor’s Commission on the Status of Women (MCSW) serves to foster a closer relationship and a fuller exchange of ideas between women of respective Districts and City Councilmembers; to further the equal legal, social, political, economic, and educational opportunity and advancement of all women and men; to eliminate discrimination on the basis of sex in all phases of American society; to promote the dissemination of information on employment opportunities for women in the public sectors, and to provide counsel when and if necessary; and to encourage women to assume initiative and accept their responsibility in the removal of legal and other barriers to the realization of their basic human rights.
