The Georgia Commission on Women is dedicated to making life better for the women of Georgia and their families. Fifteen Georgians make up the Commission, and the Governor, Lieutenant Governor, and Speaker of the House nominate them for four-year terms. Our members, appointed from all regions of the state, are devoted to the health, education, employment, and legal status of women in Georgia.
Currently, the GCW is focused on three main pillars—human trafficking, maternal mortality, and women’s health. We have several commissioners who serve on Georgia’s two statewide human trafficking task forces and work closely with other government agencies, victim services providers, advocates, and legislators to address the issue of human trafficking in our state. We partner with organizations across Georgia to address our maternal mortality and morbidity crisis and other aspects of women’s health including osteoporosis. All these efforts culminated in our First Annual Georgia Wellness Summit on June 12, 2021.
The Georgia Commission on Women plans to build on our successful past and continue to advocate for the Women of Georgia. We look forward to meeting more of our fellow Georgians and learning how we can all work together to make Georgia a leading state for women and their families.
