Biden to Sign Executive Order Creating ‘Gender Policy Council’

'The council will have an explicit role in both domestic and foreign policy development...'

President Joe Biden will sign an executive order on Monday establishing a Gender Policy Council within the White House that will serve as a front for his administration’s radical gender-based policies.

Administration officials said the council will focus on addressing gender-based discrimination and violence both in the U.S. and around the world.

Specifically, the council plans to focus on the “gender wage gap” and the equal representation of women in the workforce, CNN reported.

The council will be headed by Jennifer Klein and Julissa Reynoso, who is chief of staff to First Lady Jill Biden. It will include four other staffers—among them a special assistant to the president on gender-based violence and two special assistants on gender policy.

“The council will have an explicit role in both domestic and foreign policy development,” Reynoso said at a White House briefing. “We know that the full participation of all people, including women and girls across all aspects of our society, is essential to the economic well-being, health and security of our country and of the world.” 

The council will focus on a range of leftist policies and issues, including increasing economic security and opportunity and improving access to health care.

Officials said the council will also help the White House Coronavirus Task Force assist women in its pandemic outreach efforts.

Biden’s executive order requires the council to submit a wide-ranging strategy for the federal government to “advance gender equity and equality in the U.S. and globally,” according to administration officials. 

“This is a matter of human rights, justice and fairness,” Reynoso said.
