About PCSW

The Permanent Commission on the Status of Women (PCSW) was established by the State Legislature in 1973. Twenty-one appointed volunteer commissioners join staff and volunteers to work to eliminate sex discrimination in Connecticut. They are to inform leaders about the nature and scope of discrimination, to serve as a liaison between government and private interest groups concerned with services for women, to promote considerations of women for governmental positions, and to work with state agencies to access programs and practices as they affect women.
