NWLC Responds to Biden Administration’s National Strategy on Gender Equity and Equality
(Washington, D.C.) Earlier today, the White House released its plan for a whole-of-government strategy to advance gender equity and protect the rights of women and girls.
The following is a statement from Fatima Goss Graves, President and CEO of the National Women’s Law Center:
“The strategy outlined by the White House and the Gender Policy Council is a reminder of what is possible when you dedicate the full force of our government towards furthering gender equity. Every agency in the federal government has a role to play in helping every woman and girl thrive, ensuring our daughters and granddaughters will inherit institutions that work for them by making their lives safer and more prosperous. The strategy will be a touchstone for the work, from budgeting to policy and data. And in a first-of-its-kind approach, it builds in ways to measure their progress. We look forward to working with the Biden administration and the members of the Council on truly implementing this strategy so that people in this country—regardless of their gender—get the safety, dignity, and rights they deserve.”
