The hard truth is women — and particularly women of color — have never had a fair shot to get ahead in this country. That's why today, I'm releasing my plan to make sure women can fully participate in our economy and country. https://t.co/vUWUanQAR0

Biden releases his “Agenda for Women,” an expansive agenda that encompasses key aspects of his economic, health care, work and family, and international relations plans. Speaking with Glamour, Biden senior advisor Symone Sanders explains, “Every policy is a woman’s issue, but some policies disproportionately affect women—especially women of color.” She adds that those are the issues that the campaign seeks to highlight in this curated agenda. Sanders’ comments – as well as the expanse of the agenda – reflect the campaign’s acknowledgment that “women’s issues” should neither be simplistically defined nor relegated to the margins of the campaign’s primary policy agendas. The agenda is attentive to the diversity among women in both problem definition and proposed policy solutions.
