In an effort to gauge the status of women in Maui County and better advocate for their rights, the Committee on the Status of Women will conduct a survey at an informational booth at the mall.

The table will be set up from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 28, 2012, at the Queen Ka’ahumanu Center.

Committee members will be asking participants for five minutes of their time to gather responses for the assessment.


“We encourage everyone to participate in this survey and are interested in both female and male perspectives,” said Committee chair Barbara Potopowitz.

In addition to stopping by at the mall there are several other ways to voice opinions including: on-line at the county website at; or by obtaining a paper survey by calling Michelle in the Mayor’s office at 808-270-7855 or Committee Chair Barbara Potopowitz at 808-280-4707.

Information will be gathered through June 2012.

The Maui County Committee on the Status of Women was established by State statute in 1970 and is a seven-member volunteer group of Mayoral appointees that advocate for social justice.

Members also educate women on their rights, educate women to vote, engage in political processes, gather information on women’s issues, promote women’s equality, and serve as a resource through programming, public education, and citizen participation.
