Feminists Call For Office of Gender Equity Within the Department of Education

Women’s rights organizations are calling on the Biden-Harris administration to form an Office for Gender Equity in the Department of Education to realize the long-overdue promise of educational equity guaranteed by Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972.
