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 GCW's activities during the term of Governor Rick Perry but also include a small portion of records from when Ann Richards and George W. Bush were governors. Dates include 1988-1990, 1993-2014, with the bulk dating 2001-2013. The paper records are almost exclusively from the terms of Richards and Bush. The electronic records are entirely from Perry's term. During Ann Richards' term as governor, the commission worked toward the mental, physical and emotional health of Texas women. When George W. Bush was governor, the commission focused on the support and promotion of volunteer efforts in Texas by housing an Office of Volunteerism. The commission created a permanent Texas Women's Hall of Fame exhibit and launched a statewide education initiative promoting healthy teen dating when Rick Perry was governor. Records include incoming and outgoing correspondence (letters and emails), informational fliers and handouts, programs, brochures, ephemera, copies of newspaper articles, training material, meeting agenda and minutes, budgets, strategic planning documents, executive orders, by-laws, reports and summaries, surveys, evaluation forms, administrative materials, electronic newsletters, reports, project ideas and proposals, and speech transcripts. A substantial portion of the paper records are related to the planning, execution and evaluation of the 10th and 11th annual Professional Development Conference (with a new theme each year). Subjects include state agency volunteer training, effectively utilizing volunteers, GCW conferences, state agency council (SAC), legislation for GCW, Women's Chamber of Commerce, Women's Business Exchange, Women 50+, violence against women, healthy teen dating, women in American politics, and the Texas Women's Hall of Fame. The extent of the electronic records is provided by the file size and the number of files and folders. The inventory does not list single electronic file or folder. Folder dates are not always accurate and may contain additional years than what is stated. Formats of the original electronic files include word processing files (.doc, .docx), spreadsheets (.xls, .xlsx), PDFs, and PowerPoint. Digital files presented for public use will generally be PDF for text documents or spreadsheets. Files in their original format are available on request; restrictions may apply. Electronic records described in the finding aid that are part of the Texas Digital Archive are indicated as such in the inventory. Restrictions on access to the content of records are applicable to physical and electronic records. Correspondence for this division of the Governor's Office may exist that is not represented in this finding aid. Beginning in 2009, most correspondence generated or received by the Governor's Office is in electronic form only. In addition, all correspondence not already in electronic form has been scanned without attachments by the Governor's Office. The original correspondence in paper form may no longer be present. A searchable electronic database of this correspondence is available. To access this database, please contact Archives staff
