                Women in American History

                By the authority vested in me as President by the 
                Constitution and the laws of the United States of 
                America, including the Federal Advisory Committee Act, 
                as amended (5 U.S.C. App.), and in order to celebrate 
                the role of women in American history, it is hereby 
                ordered as follows:

                Section 1. Establishment. There is established the 
                President's Commission on the Celebration of Women in 
                American History (``Commission''). The Commission shall 
                be composed of not more than 11 members appointed by 
                the President from the public and private sectors. The 
                public sector members shall include such persons as the 
                President deems appropriate, including (a) the 
                Assistant to the President and Director of 
                Communications and (b) a person recommended by and who 
                shall be the representative of the Administrator of 
                General Services. The President may designate two 
                members as Co-Chairs of the Commission. The private 
                sector members shall represent entities interested in 
                the Commission's work on American history, particularly 
                the history of women in America. These entities may 
                include, but need not be limited to, academic 
                institutions, business entities, labor organizations, 
                public interest organizations, arts and humanities 
                institutions, State and local governments, athletic 
                groups, and organizations devoted to civil rights and 
                opportunities for minorities and women. The private 
                sector members shall not be considered special 
                Government employees.

                Sec. 2. Functions. (a) The Commission shall make 
                recommendations to the President, through the Co-Chairs 
                of the Commission, on ways to best acknowledge and 
                celebrate the roles and accomplishments of women in 
                American history. Recommendations may include, among 
                other things, the feasibility of a focal point for 
                women's history located in Washington, D.C., and the 
                use of the latest technology to connect existing and 
                planned women's history sites, museums, and libraries.

                    (b) The Commission shall meet to carry out its work 
                concerning the celebration of women in American 
                    (c) The Commission shall report its 
                recommendations, through the Co-Chairs of the 
                Commission, in a final report to the President by March 
                1, 1999.

                Sec. 3. Administration. (a) The heads of executive 
                departments and agencies shall, to the extent permitted 
                by law and where practicable, provide the Co-Chairs of 
                the Commission with such information with respect to 
                women's history in America as the Co-Chairs may 

                    (b) Members of the Commission shall serve without 
                compensation for their work on the Commission. While 
                engaged in the work of the Commission, members 
                appointed from the private sector may be allowed travel 
                expenses, including per diem in lieu of subsistence, as 
                authorized by law for persons serving intermittently in 
                Government service (5 U.S.C. 5701-5707).
