CCSWG 2022 Annual Report

Building off the success of our award-winning 2021 Annual Report, this report moves into 2023 articulating an unprecedented expansion of the Commission’s work and articulates the ongoing needs for women and families in California.


The California Blueprint For Women’s Pandemic Economic Recovery

The first of its kind, the Blueprint explores the unique economic impact the pandemic had on California women and provides key insights on the  intersectionality of COVID-19’s impact on women, their families and the state’s economic standing. 

About the Commission

For more than 50 years, the California Commission on the Status of Women and Girls has identified and worked to eliminate inequities in state laws, practices, and conditions that affect California’s women and girls. Established as a state agency with 17 appointed commissioners in 1965, the Commission regularly assesses gender equity in health, safety, employment, education, and equal representation in the military, and the media. The Commission provides leadership through research, policy and program development, education, outreach and collaboration, advocacy, and strategic partnerships.

*All references to ‘women and girls’ include gender-expansive individuals (cis women and girls, trans women and girls, nonbinary individuals, gender-nonconforming individuals, genderqueer individuals, and any women or girl identified individuals).
