President Biden has created a gender policy council as part of two Monday executive orders on International Women’s day.
Biden said in a statement “In our nation, as in all nations, women have fought for justice, shattered barriers, built and sustained economies, carried communities through times of crisis, and served with dignity and resolve. Too often, they have done so while being denied the freedom, full participation, and equal opportunity all women are due.”
Per Newsmax “the council’s mandate is to work across the federal government’s domestic and foreign policy to fight discrimination and bias, boost economic security, increase access to health care, and advance general equality through diplomacy, trade and defense.”
Vice President Harris said in remarks to European Parliament “today, the global crises we now face have made abundantly clear both the contributions of women and the challenges facing women.”
“If we build a world that works for women, our nations will all be safer, stronger and more prosperous,” she added.
