Summary note
The Equal Opportunities Commission was set up as an independent statutory body that worked towards the elimination of discrimination on the grounds of sex or marriage, promoted equal opportunities for women and men, kept the Sex and Discrimination Act under review, and provided legal advice and assistance to individuals who had been discriminated against. In 2007 it merged into the Equality and Human Rights Commission. The collection includes minutes and papers of Equal Opportunities Commission meetings, minutes and papers of its legal committee, surviving papers of other committees and working parties, and major case papers. With material covering 1962 to 2007, this collection is especially important in bringing the conversation on women's voices and visibility into the twenty-first century.
