The Comision Femenil Mexicana Nacional, Inc. was founded by resolution at the 1970 National Issues Conference in Sacramento California. The founding President was Francisca Flores, a Chicana activist already well respected for her many decades of community works. Recognizing that there were few organizations that met the needs of Latina women, nine resolutions were presented to the full body calling for the establishment of a Chicana/Mexicana women's commission.
The resolution called for a commission that could direct its efforts toward organizing and networking women that they might assume leadership positons within the Chicano movement and in the community. Designed to disseminate news and information regarding the achievements of Chicana/Mexican women, and promote programs that provide solutions for women and their families.
