President Barack Obama has created a White House council to advise him on issues facing women and girls. In making the announcement, the President said the nation must work to make sure its daughters and granddaughters have every opportunity to succeed. He appears to have been motivated by his single mother raising his family and by his grandmother being denied promotions at her job. The President says his administration should help women facing challenges like that and I totally agree with him.
The President named senior adviser Valerie Jarrett to head the group. Members of his Cabinet will serve with the panel as well. Tina Tchen will run its day-to-day operations. The announcement came as part of the Administration’s push with Women’s History Month. Significantly, this will be the first time that women are to have one entity working on problems unique to females.
