San Francisco Commission on the Status of Women
A Message from Commission President Andrea Shorter
The Commission is dedicated to a broad range of issues affecting women and girls, including violence prevention, gender equality in the workplace, and equal representation on public decision-making bodies. As one of the strongest women's commissions in the country, we have led the way on innovative policies that reduce the incidence of violence against women in our neighborhoods and enhance gender equality in local government and in local companies. We are committed to working with our community partner agencies to ensure the delivery of culturally and linguistically competent services. Language should not be a barrier to seeking help. Please join us at one of our future meetings, which are open to the public. We want to hear from you!
