About Us

The Permanent Commission on the Status of Women in Connecticut was formed in 2016 to carry out the work of the former state agency of the same name (the “Commission”). The Commission was formed in 1973, and, for 43 years, has developed landmark legislation as well as done research in the areas of sexual harassment, domestic violence, family medical leave, pay equity and human trafficking to improve the lives of women and girls in Connecticut.

In 2016, the Commission was merged with other state agencies, and the PCSW was reincorporated as two non-profit private corporations. These two entities together comprise the PCSW today. The Permanent Commission on the Status of Women in Connecticut Education Fund, Inc., a 501(c)(3) entity, (the "PCSW") carries out strategic initiatives, outreach and research. The Permanent Commission on the Status of Women in Connecticut, Inc., is a 501(c)(4) entity (the "PCSW, Inc.") and carries out legislative advocacy. The organization applying for this Grant is the PCSW only, a 501(c)(3) organization.
