The Washington State Women’s Commission was established in 2018 by House Bill 2759, signed by Governor Jay Inslee. The Commission works to “improve the life of every woman by ensuring equitable opportunities and removing systemic barriers through engagement, advocacy, and public policy, while being inclusive of our diverse populations.”
