March is Women's History Month. This year's theme is: Our History is Our Strength.
Later this month, black women will roll out an empowerment initiative. For now, I want to share a newly released White House report, Women in America: Indicators of Social and Economic Well-Being, the first comprehensive federal analysis of the status of women since the 1963 report of the Presidential Commission on the Status of Women established by President Kennedy.
In a statement, Valerie Jarrett, chair of the White House Council on Women and Girls, said:
The Obama Administration has been focused on addressing the challenges faced by women and girls from day one because we know that the success of women and girls is vital to winning the future. Today's report not only serves as a look back on American women's lives, but serves as a guidepost to help us move forward.
Rebecca Blank, Acting Deputy Secretary of Commerce, added:
With this report, this administration can more effectively manage programs that support women and girls and America’s families, and foster the growth of the U.S. economy.
