Commission for Women

 

On March 18, 1975, a motion was introduced to the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors to prepare a draft ordinance to establish an independent County Commission for Women. A 15-member commission was created to represent the special interests and concerns of women of all races, ethnic and social backgrounds, religious convictions, sexual orientation and social circumstances.

Based primarily on data from the United States Census, the report includes a demographic overview of the ethnicity, age, race, family relationships, and veteran status of women and girls in LA County. Sections on educational attainment, economic wellbeing, home and family, health, and violence against women offer data, tables, and graphics of how women and girls are faring here on a wide variety of indicators of wellbeing. The report was commissioned by the Los Angeles County Commission for Women and conducted by Mount Saint Mary’s University. It was published on January 2019.
