Commission on the Status of Women

YOU Have a Voice!

In partnership with you — the women of Sonoma County — we represent your needs, issues, and concerns to our local government officials to ensure that women's issues are in the forefront when considering policy and actions that will affect women on local, state, and national levels. 

We currently have two openings in the 4th District, and a number of our ad hoc committees and liaison groups are accepting volunteers at this time. Please consider getting involved.

Calling All Future Leaders and Advocates for the Rights of Women and Girls — The 2018-2019 Junior Commissioner Project Application Period is Open!

Much has happened in the past year to bring deserved attention to the inequalities faced by women and girls. From pay equity, #MeToo, and #TimesUp, voices are being heard and stories are being told! We've made great strides nationally and internationally on the path toward equality, but work remains. If you have a desire to learn what can be done locally, collaborate with others to spread a message, and help educate your peers and your community, we invite you to apply to this youth mentorship program.

The Junior Commissioner Project was designed to enhance leadership skills and serves as a learning experience for students regarding issues of women’s equality and the need for all women and girls to foster skills for independence and success in a changing global community. The program further encourages young students in the County to become active participants in their local communities, teaches the importance of developing a voice with which to advocate, and provides a vehicle by which County Supervisors are able to learn about current concerns and issues of young women in Sonoma County.

Applications for the 2018-2019 term will be accepted through Monday, February 19, 2018. Learn more about the Junior Commissioner Project.

#SonomaStrong #SonomaProud

Our hearts go out to our community in the face of this catastrophic event of loss and suffering. The impact of the North Bay fires stretches across our entire community. We have a long road ahead, but the many Commissioners and County employees volunteering out in the community have seen firsthand the incredible sense of community and caring we have here in Sonoma County.

Special thoughts, prayers, and gratitude to the amazing crews of fire fighters and law enforcement who worked hard to protect our community, and our second responders – healthcare professionals who quickly set up crisis clinics at all of the shelters.

May we all work together to rebuild and recover, and remember that the love in the air was thicker than the smoke.
