The Florida Commission on the Status of Women (FCSW) consists of a nonpartisan board established in 1991 to study and "make recommendations to the Governor, Cabinet and Legislature on issues affecting women". The FCSW oversees two awards: the Florida Women's Hall of Fame, an honor roll of women who have contributed to life for citizens of Florida, and the Florida Achievement Award for individuals who have improved the lives of women and girls in Florida (an award is focused on outstanding volunteerism). FCSW members serve by appointment and the commission is housed at the Office of the Attorney General of Florida.[1]

An awards ceremony for the Florida Women's Hall of Fame was first held in 1982 and recipient names are displayed in the Florida State Capitol.[1]
