Commission on the Status of Women
To maximize parity for women and girls by supporting elimination of gender discriminatory services and practices.
The Alameda County Commission on the Status of Women was created in 1975 to help eliminate discrimination and prejudice against women in such areas as housing, employment, health services, childcare, education, transportation, credit, legal rights, and community services.
The commission consists of seventeen (17) members appointed by the Alameda County Board of Supervisors. Each supervisor can nominate three members from their district. There is one seat available to a member of the County’s Human Relations Commission and one seat is available to the Alameda County Mayors' Conference.
