GETTING WHAT THEY VOTED FOR, GOOD AND HARD: Biden Celebrates International Women’s Day by Forcing Girls to Share Bathrooms, Sports Teams, With Boys.

Biden Celebrates International Women’s Day by Forcing Girls to Share Bathrooms, Sports Teams, With Boys.

President Joe Biden pulled out all the stops for International Women’s Day on Monday, but he arguably undercut women’s advancement while paying lip service to it. He issued a glowing statement about women’s empowerment, launched a Gender Policy Council, and signed an executive order barring “sex discrimination” — including discrimination on the basis of gender identity — in public schools.

“On International Women’s Day, we celebrate the achievements, contributions, and progress of women and girls in the United States and around the globe,” Biden declared. “My Administration is committed to honoring women by investing in their opportunity, security, and wellbeing.”

“Elevating the status of women and girls globally is the right thing to do — it is a matter of justice, fairness, and decency, and it will lead to a better, more secure, and more prosperous world for us all,” Biden argued.
