The Georgia Commission on Women
The Georgia Commission on Women was created in 1992 by the Georgia General Assembly and Governor Zell Miller to monitor the status, rights, and opportunities of women in Georgia. As the situation for Georgia women has changed over the past three decades, we have adapted our focus to meet the needs of the day. Currently, our efforts are centered around three main pillars—human trafficking, maternal mortality, and women’s health—and we partner with other government agencies and organizations across the state to address these issues. Our overarching goal is to continue to advocate for a Georgia where women can thrive.
Most recently, the GCW has focused on health and safety issues for women in Georgia. Several of our commissioners serve on the Criminal Justice Coordinating Council’s two statewide human trafficking task forces working to fight against human trafficking in our state. Our partnerships with Healthy Mothers Healthy Babies, the United Advanced Practice Registered Nurses of Georgia, the Georgia Nurses’ Association, and other healthcare partners shine a light on the maternal mortality crisis in Georgia as well as other issues related to women’s health. All our work culminated in our First Annual Georgia Wellness Summit held on June 12, 2021.
