Biden celebrates Women’s Day by signing Gender Equality Decrees

On International Women’s Day, President Joe Biden will sign two decrees on Monday to advance women’s rights in the United States.

The first executive order, which Biden signed this Monday morning, aims to establish a team within the White House dedicated to analyzing that the policies of his government, both national and international, are based on gender equality.

“My administration is committed to honoring women by investing in their opportunities, safety, and well-being,” Biden said in a statement.

The president will celebrate the signing of a second decree at an event scheduled for 4:20 pm ET at the White House.

Biden’s second executive order would be for the Department of Education to evaluate some policies implemented by the administration of former President Donald Trump.

The policies include changes to the regulations for granting federal funds for educational purposes, which prohibit discrimination on the basis of a person’s sex in federally funded educational institutions.

Government officials believe this decree could lead to a change in the way some universities deal with reports of sexual misconduct.
