Commission Support & Ties
The commission was created on May 24, 1977. Individual Commission appointments reflect legislative districts in Harford County. The commission supports local programs that benefit women. In addition, the commission maintains close ties with other women's groups on county, state, and federal levels. These ties provide learning and sharing opportunities, and also ensure unified advocacy on issues of importance to women.
