President Obama loves women and girls

12Mar09

President Obama signed an executive order Wednesday creating the White House Council on Women and Girls. “First Friend” and Assistant to the President/Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett (above) will chair the council. The goal of the council is to coordinate a federal response to the challenges women and girls face everyday with emphasis on improving economic status, work-life balance, and health care, and addressing violence against women.

Agencies across the federal government will be required to examine the “particular needs and concerns of women and girls” and “ensure that they [agencies] are focused internally and externally on women.”

In the words of Jada Pinkett Smith, “Girls Hold Up this World.”

And we love Obama.

Speak your peace.

  1. My Choctaw father and my Apache maternal grandfather taught all of us boys that “women will hold up your house so be careful with your whiskey.” I wish I could ask them if that was a drug-interaction warning.
