Governor's Commission for Women records
The Governor's Commission for Women (GCW) was created in 1967 to serve as a liaison between Texas women and government agencies, as well as private entities addressing women's needs. A division of the Office of the Governor, the commission specializes in outreach, education, research and referral services. These records primarily document the activities of the GCW during the term of Governor Rick Perry. Dates include 1988-1990, 1993-2014, with the bulk dating 2001-2013. While the electronic records are entirely from Governor Perry's term in office, a significant portion of the paper records are from the terms of governors Ann Richards and George W. Bush. The records document the focus areas and projects that the commission was involved with, including health and wellness, military family assistance, teen dating violence prevention, women in business, and local women's commissions in Texas.
