Mayor Catherine E. Pugh and City Council Vice President Sharon Green Middleton are seeking candidates to serve on the Baltimore City Commission for Women (“Women’s Commission”). The Women’s Commission will be an inclusive community resource comprised of individuals who believe in equal rights, opportunities, and access to services for all women. 

The Commission will strive to increase the number of women in leadership and all areas of policy advocacy and encourage engagement in the legislative process; support transitional services for girls leaving the foster care system; address sexual and domestic violence against women; promote economic empowerment; and work to eliminate special challenges facing older women and women with disabilities. The members ultimately will develop policy and advocate for women’s issues to improve the quality of lives of all women in Baltimore City.
