In order to address issues and concerns of women in the province, the Provincial Social Welfare and Development Office wrote a concept paper in August 1993 about a commission that would cater to women empowerment
It was in January 17, 1994 when a committee studied the concept paper and presented it to selected women leaders from different sectors in February 8-9, 1994 to be re-examined. And in February 22, 1994 the creation of Panlalawigang Komisyon para sa Kababaihan ng Bulacan (PKKB) was launched through the Executive Order 94-02 in Hiyas ng Bulacan Convention Center, Lungsod ng Malolos, Bulacan and was institutionalized later through Provincial Board Resolution 2000-412.
Although PKKB is a government institution, it is manned by eleven (10) women leaders from different Women Non-Government Organizations making it a good model of GO-NGO partnership.
