Women should vote for BidenShow moreShow less
Joe Biden has been a consistent supporter of women's rights and will structure his administration to ensure women's issues remain at the forefront of US policy.
Biden's administration will protect women's rights and addresses the unique needs of all women, including Black women, Latina women, Native women, Asian American and Pacific Islander women, women with disabilities, and lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and queer women. The Democratic administration created the White House Council on Women and Girls to ensure the federal government was tackling issues like equal pay, paid family leave, and poverty effectively. The Trump Administration disbanded this and replaced it with nothing.
Biden will guide and coordinate a policy that helps women and girls, such as economic policy, health care, racial justice, gender-based violence, and foreign policy.
