Obama Signs Order Creating Women’s Council

March 11th, 2009, by

As we mentioned yesterday, it’s Women’s History Month. And today, President Obama signed an executive order creating a White House Council on Women and Girls. The council’s first year will be focused on the “economic status of women,” establishing a “balance between work and family,” preventing “violence against women, at home and abroad” and improving “women’s health care.” Valerie Jarrett will head the council.

Some people are on board with the new council. Some people say it’s not enough. What do you think?
