    The Michigan Women’s Commission was created in 1968 made up for representatives from the Department of Education, Social Services, and Labor and Civil Service.  The Commission was created in response to President Kennedy’s Presidential Commission on the Status of Women founded 1962.  From the time it was created until today, they are dedicated to improving the quality of life for Michigan women. They do this through a variety of sources. This Commission provides workshops and conferences across Michigan to educated women on public issues, as well as to get women more socially acclimated or prepare them to overcome prejudices they may face in the social or working realm.   They get involved in legislation through a variety different Task Forces.  The Commission also publishes many reports for women to read on specific issues that relate to women.  Currently, over 100 women contact the Michigan Women’s Commission each month.

    .

    Since 1968, the Commission has held a variety of conferences, workshops or published reports that have touched a wide range of topics: sex discrimination, domestic assault, alcohol abuse, women in business, “older women’s issues”, child care, breast cancer awareness, stalking, women’s health, date rape drugs, and young woman leadership. Any topic that can better the lives on women is a topic the Women’s Commission will cover.

    Not only does the Women’s Commission help through educating the public, they also help lobby and get involved in legislation that will improve women’s lives. In the past they have helped establish the “Friend of the Court,” by creating a Task Force, and lobbied for the passing of an anti-stalking legislation. Not to mention from 1985-86, they started a grassroots movement to bring together women’s organizations statewide. Most recently in 2006, the Women’s Commission supported the bill to allow second parent adoption. During this time the Coalition for Adoption Rights Equality president said “having their support will be very helpful for gaining more organizational support throughout the state”(Between the Lines News). This Commission has made its mark in Michigan.
