Group of Women Smiling


The Mississippi Commission on the Status of Women was created in 2001 by the Mississippi Legislature under House Bill 797, and is codified in Miss. Code Ann. Section 43-59-1. Our Commissioners are appointed by the Governor, the Lieutenant Governor, the Speaker of the House, and the Attorney General. Each of our Commissioners serves in a voluntary capacity, with a particular focus on issues that impact the lives of our state's women and children, and by extension, all Mississippians.
