Council on Women and Girls Weekly Highlights

This week, the Administration kicked off our annual celebration of Women’s History Month. The President reaffirmed his commitment to improving the welfare of women and girls by releasing a Data Report that discusses the status of women in the spheres of health care, violence, education, populations and families, and employment. The President also met with governors to discuss the importance of giving state governments the flexibility to achieve progress individually, while the First Lady and Dr. Biden urged them to join the administration’s effort to support military servicemen and their families.
