Joe Biden announced he will request $2.6 billion for foreign assistance programs to promote "gender equality" abroad. A week before that, during his State of the Union address, he pleaded with Congress to pass the Equality Act—a piece of legislation he vowed to enshrine as law within his first 100 days in office.
The bill would, among other things, create federal protections against discrimination based on the concept of gender identity.
It passed the House of Representatives last year, but is currently pending approval of the Senate.Biden had already established the White House Gender Policy Council, tasked with "leading a government-wide effort to advance gender equity and equality both at home and abroad," and launched a National Strategy on Gender Equity and Equality to address "gender discrimination" and "work to advance gender equity and equality in the law and ensure that rights on paper are fully implemented in practice."It appears that women's rights have now become gender rights.You would be forgiven for forgetting that the United States was a pioneer in outlawing sex discrimination through the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
