On Nov. 18, 2016, attorney Miranda Mills received a letter from Gov. Pat McCrory confirming her appointment to fill a vacant seat on the North Carolina Council for Women.

What is the North Carolina Council for Women?

The Council for Women is North Carolina’s “leading voice” on women’s issues ranging from domestic violence and sexual assault to human trafficking. According to the Council’s website, its mission is to advise the Governor, state lawmakers, and state agencies on these and other issues, and has been doing so since 1963.

In addition to advising the Governor and lawmakers, the Council raises general public awareness, serves as a resource to local women’s councils, and ensures that necessary services are functioning properly.
