Arnold Schwarzenegger Appoints Geena Davis to Women's Equality Panel


The action man-turned-California Governor has chosen the actress to a state commission established to promote women's equality as she has previously worked to promote the cause.

Action man-turned-California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has appointed actress Geena Davis to a state commission established to promote women's equality. The "Thelma & Louise" star, a Democrat, was appointed to California's Commission on the Status of Women on Tuesday, July 20.

The nonpartisan panel works to promote equality and justice for all women in areas such as education and access to health care. 54-year-old Davis has previously worked to promote the cause - she is involved in the United Nations Development Fund for Women and is founder of the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media, which encourages film and TV writers to create more roles for the fairer sex. Davis will serve on the commission for four years.

Through a statement to Associated Press, Davis said, "I am delighted to join the governor and this commission. This appointment affords an important opportunity to improve the lives and well being of girls and women throughout California."
