On Tuesday, which is International Women’s Day, President Biden announced that he will ask Congress for a foreign spending bill, in the amount of $2.6 Billion, to aid women’s equity around the globe.
You have to be careful when reading these articles on the topic because of the ease of swapping the words equity and equality.
With most every discussion involving race, gender, or sexual orientation, there is the fine line that is balanced when using these two words that sound similar at first glance, but have different meaning.
Gender Equality, means that people of any gender or identification of gender, deserve to have access to the same resources and opportunities. I think that most people will agree with this statement. Basically, everyone deserves a fair shot at their goals and dreams.
Equity is something quite different. Equity basically assigns differences (ie. racism and sexism) into the equation and instead of offering equal opportunity and resources, assigns a handicap to an individual based on sex or race, and then allocates exact resources needed for an individual to reach the same and equal outcome, regardless of effort.
Biden’s plan is to spend $2.6 Billion telling women of other countries that they aren’t as good as their Male counterparts and that they need more resources and an easier path to success, because they are just poor, ethnic women.

President Joe Biden said Tuesday that he will ask Congress for $2.6 billion for foreign aid programs that promote gender equality worldwide, more than double the size of last year’s request.
Biden announced his intentions on International Women’s Day, which recognizes the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women around the world.
Biden created the first-ever White House Gender Policy Council on International Women’s Day last year to help promote gender equity throughout the administration.
He said everyone deserves to live up to their “God-given” potential, regardless of gender, and that societies perform better when women and girls are allowed to prosper.
“Ensuring that every woman and girl has that chance isn’t just the right thing to do — it’s also a strategic imperative that advances the prosperity, stability, and security of our nation and the world,” the president said in a written statement.
The White House also hosted a livestream International Women’s Day event Tuesday to discuss the announcement, featuring Secretary of State Antony Blinken from Europe, acting budget director Shalanda Young, U.S. Agency for International Development Administrator Samantha Power and Jen Klein, director of the Gender Policy Council. They were joined by young women leaders from Ukraine, Brazil, Zambia, Burma, Jordan and the United States.
Jill Biden marked International Women’s Day with a video tribute to women. She said during an appearance Tuesday in Arizona that the women of Ukraine and Russia were in her thoughts.
“I’m thinking about the women in Ukraine fighting to keep their country safe, and those holding their children, you know, holding them close as they flee to safety. And we’ve all seen the pictures,” she said in Tucson. “You’re mothers and you can see what they’re going through, and your hearts go out to each and every one of them. And I’m thinking of the brave women of Russia who have risked their safety to speak out against the invasion.”
“Women have never been silent. But women have been silenced, with violence, with discrimination, and with isolation, and it’s work and care that is never done,’ the first lady added.
Biden’s $2.6 billion funding request will be included in his federal budget proposal for fiscal year 2023, which starts Oct. 1.
Biden sought $1.2 billion for gender equality programs in his 2022 budget proposal. The numbers haven’t been finalized since Congress is still working on the budget.
The White House has not said when Biden will send his 2023 spending proposal to Congress.
