Women-empowerment is seeing fulfillment as President-elect Biden nominated female appointees to fill senior positions of his administration’s communications team. It’s another first in the history of American politics, as the members of Biden’s communications staff include women of color.
So far, the incoming President’s picks are generally garnering great feedback as they demonstrate the fulfillment of Mr. Biden’s campaign promise of diversity to a government that is faced with economic, social and health challenges.
Anita Dunn, one of Mr. Biden’s top campaign aide, describes the all-female members as a strong team, even while having diverse viewpoints are capable of forming a cohesive group. Ms. Dunn expects that the strong wome n named by the President-elect will disrupt a journalism system in which mostly male views typically dominate government and political media coverages
Former CNN Contributor to Act as White House Press Secretary
Jennifer “Jen” Psaki, a former CNN contributor but whose main credential in qualifying as Biden’s WH Press Secretary is her reputation as a veteran political adviser and Democratic spokeswoman. Additionally, she also took office at the White House in 2015 up to 2017 as WH Communications Director and as spokesperson for the State Department, whilst performing other communication and press functions under the Obama Administration.
Katherine “Kate” Bedingfield, Long Time Biden Campaign Aide Named WH Communications Director
Kate Bedingfield, who has been a long time campaign aide for the president-elect will be seeing action under the Biden administration as White House Communications Director. Her political career links to the President-elect back to when she first served as a communication director to Biden during his term as Vice President to Obama.
Women’s Views will Finally Have an Impact in the U.S
From the very moment Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden made a decision to choose a woman as running mate, the signal became clear that women’s voices and their issues will finally be heard in the coming four years. Mr. Biden still chose Kamala Harris, even if it meant reversing his position on Pro-Choice, or the right of women to seek abortion if deemed necessary by women faced with unwanted pregnancy,
There’s a whole lot of difference with the way the past four years of the Trump administration have given recognition to women when it comes to policy making decisions. Many regard Biden’s female picks as a reflection of how Biden recognizes the value of his female campaign aides’ contributions, their activism as well as political donations, which made it possible for him to win the November presidential elections.
In sponsoring this article, we also are championing President-elect Biden’s nomination of top economist Janet Yellen. As a website promoting the health and well-being of seniors especially women, we consider the 74-year old Ms Yellen as a role model for older women as they enter retirement age. A former Federal Reserve Chairwoman, Ms. Yellen’s confirmation as the country’s next Secretary of Treasury will also mark another first in American history.
As an aside, our advice to senior women is to continue to take part in mind and body-enriching activities despite the threats posed by the ongoing pandemic. While it’s a must to observe safety and prevention protocols as well as limit social interaction, keep doing things online as a precaution.
Maintain communications with loved ones and friends even virtually, or shop for comfortable bras for older women at online stores; or arrange for online medical consultations with healthcare providers.
