Georgia Commission on Women Celebrates 30 Years
The Georgia Commission on Women was created in 1992 by the Georgia General Assembly and Governor Zell Miller to monitor the status, rights, and opportunities of women in Georgia. As the situation for Georgia women has changed over the past three decades, we have adapted our focus to meet the needs of the day. Currently, our efforts are centered around three main pillars—human trafficking, maternal mortality, and women’s health—and we partner with other government agencies and organizations across the state to address these issues. Our overarching goal is to continue to advocate for a Georgia where women can thrive.

HB1013 Mental Health Parity
This year a momentous bill was passed, HB1013 Mental Health Parity.
