STATEMENT: CHANGE Applauds President Biden’s EO Establishing White House Gender Policy Council

WASHINGTON, DC -- In response to President Biden’s announcement that he will sign an executive order establishing the White House Gender Policy Council, which will establish a government-wide approach to addressing gender equality and human rights of women and girls who face intersecting forms of discrimination, Serra Sippel, President of CHANGE (the Center for Health and Gender Equity) issued the following:

“We applaud the Biden-Harris Administration this International Women’s Day for establishing this much-needed gender policy committee in a time when disproportionate gender-based discrimination and violence affecting women, girls, and LGBTQ+ communities is at an all-time high. 

“Getting the United States back on track to serve as a leader that is in-step with the views of the global community on sexual and reproductive health and rights should come first and foremost to any agenda to achieve true gender equality. Further, our government must fully acknowledge the experiences of transgender, non-binary, and gender non-conforming people with gender-based violence and access to sexual and reproductive health care and ensure they are not left out of U.S. domestic and global health commitments or policies.

“Without basic human rights for all, there is no gender equality, and sexual and reproductive health and rights are human rights. Period. The establishment of the White House Gender Policy Council is a step in the right direction of advancing global health and gender equality once and for all.”
