Alabama Women's Commission

The Alabama Women's Commission is in place to improve and advance the lives of women in the State of Alabama through research, education, and public awareness. They work to influence legislation, policies, and programs that related to lives of women.

Today, First Lady Dianne Bentley attended the first luncheon of the Alabama Women's Commission. This luncheon was called Impact: Celebrating Alabama Women. The honored guests were the two women in Alabama's Congressional Delegation, US Representative Martha Roby and US Representative Terri Sewell. Mrs. Bentley introduced these two women before they opened the floor for a panel discussion. Economic issues were discussed as well as how Alabama compares to other states.

Mrs. Bentley was proud to be among so many outstanding women from the state of Alabama and hopes that the Women's Commission will be able to continue positively affecting the lives of women in the state.

Below are photos from the event. The first pictures Mrs. Bentley with US Representative Roby, US Representative Sewell, and the leadership of the Alabama Women's Commission.
