About the commission
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.
The Harford County Commission for Women is a group of 15 volunteer citizens dedicated to promoting the economic, social, and political equality of women. Commissioners are appointed by the county executive and confirmed by the county council for a three-year term with the opportunity of serving two terms.
