MEMBERS OF the Tennessee Economic Council on Women listen to an expert testify about the economic impact of violence against women. The council assesses the economic status of women in Tennessee and develops and advocates solutions to address women’s needs in order to help them achieve economic autonomy. The Tennessee Economic Council on Women is a state agency created by the 100th General Assembly in 1998 to address the economic needs of Tennessee women. It is attached administratively to the Office of the Secretary of State. Members of the Council represent each of the nine Development Districts of the State, the State’s university system, the governor’s cabinet, women’s organizations, the Black Caucus and the Women’s Caucus, along with other members from the Senate and the House. The Council first met in June 1999. Contributed photo
