The mission of the Brookline Commission for Women is to promote equity and justice for all women and girls, including all who identify as female.

Our Core Values:

Gender Justice: We reject patriarchy, transphobia, and homophobia and work to create a world free from misogyny.

Intersectionality: We recognize that race, ethnicity, class/income, and gender intersect to compound discrimination against BIPOC women and girls.

Collaboration: We seek to work with other individuals, committees, and groups in Brookline to address issues of gender inequity.

Transparency: We act with and in front of the public as an essential part of our work.

Determination: We know change will happen only if we consistently name, document, and stand up to inequality, discrimination, and aggression against women and girls.

Our Work:

We advocate on behalf of all women and girls to ensure safety and equal treatment, voice, and participation in Brookline;

We support all women and girls who are struggling and who strive for a better life;

We celebrate the strength, contributions, and diversity of all women and girls.
