About the Commission
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.
The scholarship program was created in 1999. This is when the Commission for Women hosted an annual Run/Walk event to raise funds for young women.
The Commission has taken proceeds from this and other annual events in order to provide over 300 young women supplemental educational scholarships.
