WASHINGTON – First Lady Jill Biden used a Women’s History Month event at the White House to urge men to step up and fight for the protection of women’s rights.
Jill Biden, who preceded President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris in speaking, lamented in full-throated fashion that women once again find themselves litigating “battles we thought we had won a long time ago.”
“We need more men to hold each other accountable when harm or backlash is caused to women,” she added.
The Supreme Court declared last June that states can ban abortion. Since then, Republican-controlled local congresses across the country have issued provisions that shorten the period in which a woman can terminate a pregnancy or have restricted access to abortion.
“The fight for women’s equality must come to an end,” the First Lady said.
President Biden, in his remarks, pledged that his administration will keep improving the economic status of women as a priority and asserted that every major issue facing the nation – from public safety to public health – is directly related to improving the economic security and well-being of that sector of the population.
“We must recommit ourselves to working to improve the future of our nation’s daughters,” he said.
