Hide Profile

Lynda Van Scoyoc's work in women's rights began in the early 1970s with the Orlando Police Officer's Auxiliary where, as the organization's vice president, she helped develop training programs for police officer's wives to help them to understand the rigors and demands of being a police officer. In 1975 Van Scoyoc and others would begin to develop the Metropolitan Orlando Women's Political Caucus (MOWPC) for which she served as the first president. She became increasingly active in women's rights at the national level serving as the NWPC's fund-raising chair from 1987-1989, as well as being the NWPC's Delegate-at-Large and serving on the Administrative Committee from 1989-1993.
