About Us

Welcome! Thank you for stopping by our site.

The Women's Equality 2020 Leadership Council is a forty-six member council formed by the Board of Supervisors (BOS) to assist in the County’s efforts to commemorate and honor the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage, ensure a complete census count, broaden electoral participation in 2020, and advance women’s equality. August 26th, 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment that granted citizens the right to vote regardless of sex. The County of Santa Clara recognizes the commemoration of the Centennial Celebration as an opportunity to continue advocating for equal rights for ALL residents. The County Resolution BOS-2018-70 that created the council and Bylaws can be found on the BOS Meeting Portal here. Everyone is welcome to participate and there are many ways to get involved.

The Office of Women's Policy co-chairs the following four work groups in partnership with:
