The Governor's Commission on the Status of Women was created by a November 12, 1963 executive order.

In 1967, the state of Minnesota created the Department of Human Rights when the legislature broadened the scope of the State Commission Against Discrimination (SCAD). The department absorbed the duties of SCAD, the Governor's Human Rights Commission, the Minneapolis Mayor's Council on Human Relations, and the Governor's Commission on the Status of Women.
