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.

The Commission on the Status of Women of Sonoma County recognizes that we are on the ancestral lands of the Pomo, Wappo, and Coast Miwok, who are the original stewards of this land. We further acknowledge that the office of the Commission on the Status of Women resides on Southern Pomo land in Santa Rosa. We respect and honor the past, present, and future generations, and are grateful for the opportunity to give our respect to the first inhabitants.

Voices of Sonoma County Women

The Sonoma County Commission on the Status of Women invites you to participate in our second annual Voices of Sonoma County Women survey! We are conducting this study to gain a deeper understanding of the status of girls, women, transgender, non-binary, gender fluid, and gender nonconforming persons in our communities and to assess the social and economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Commission on the Status of Women is passionate about hearing from women from a wide range of backgrounds. Here is the link to the survey:
