Historical Background

Following Thailand's participation in the World Conference to review the achievements of the United Nations Decade of Women in 1975, the Royal Thai Government approved the establishment of a state organization for women to formulate policies and plans for the promotion of Thai women's roles and status. The present National Commission on Women's Affairs was eventually established as a permanent national-level women's organization, as stated in the Rules and Regulations of the Office of the Prime Minister for the National Promotion and Coordination of Women's Affairs issued on March 8, 1989.
