Historical Note

The General Assembly created the Permanent Commission on the Status of Women (PCSW) in 1973. Title 46(a) of the Connecticut General Statutes provides for a seventeen member commission and a support staff to work to eliminate sex discrimination within the state. The Governor appoints five members. The Speaker of the House and the President Pro Tempore appoint four members each. The co-chairs of the Judiciary Committee and its ranking minority members also serve as commissioners. Initially, these representatives came from the Joint Standing Committee on Human Rights and Opportunities, but the legislature changed the composition to reflect a broader legal perspective.

The Commission's first task was to review existing statutes to ensure conformity with the 1974 state equal rights amendment. Working with the legislature and private organizations interested in gender equality, the PCSW succeeded in making many state laws gender neutral. It continues its efforts to ensure equal employment, housing, credit and educational opportunities for the state's women.

In addition to its legislative efforts, the PCSW assists individuals who believe they have suffered sex discrimination in employment and other areas. The PCSW offers advice on legal rights and assists with filing formal complaints with the Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities, the state's enforcement agency on discrimination. The PCSW provides speakers and workshop leaders to organizations interested in issues affecting women and also maintains a talent bank listing qualified women available to serve in unpaid positions on various boards, councils and commissions in state government. In addition, the Commission's staff produces publications on topics ranging from job rights and non-traditional job resources to pregnancy and maternity leave.

From time to time, the Commission undertakes special projects. These have included surveying Connecticut industry to estimate the potential for industry-based child care as well as working with state government to increase the number of female troopers. Special Act 87-91 mandated that the PCSW study conditions of women and children in the criminal justice system including educational and occupational opportunities for female prisoners. Other projects have examined disabled women's needs, researched women's contributions to Connecticut history, assisted in improving equal educational opportunities, and studied the economic impact of divorce in Connecticut.
