Washington (Reuters) – President Joe Biden will sign two executive orders on economic justice for women on Monday, said Jen Psaki, White House press secretary.
Psaki, who spoke at the daily press conference on Friday, did not respond to the order of the executive but promised to provide details over the weekend.
Biden has made women's issues a priority, given women top jobs and staff positions in the White House, and established a White House-based Gender Policy Council to ensure that all agencies and departments consider women's issues in policy development.
As a candidate, Biden pledged to narrow the pay gap between men and women, invest in women-owned companies and tackle workplace discrimination.
His vice president, Kamala Harris, is the first woman to hold this position.
