Ivanka Trump: The W-GDP Is a Bipartisan Bill that Will Codify Women’s Empowerment as a Foreign Policy Priority

‘There’s never been a priority with funds or with dedicated personnel at the United States State Department so this will change that’

IVANKA TRUMP: “Today a bipartisan bill, aptly called the W-GDP Act, is going to be dropped by Senator Shaheen and Senator Lindsey Graham in the Senate, in a couple of days. There will be a counterpart bill in the House and it will for the first time in the history of the U.S. government codify women’s empowerment as a foreign policy priority at the State Department and create the appropriate resources. So for years, since the Bush Administration, there has never been — there has never been an actual law that talks about the role of women, 50 percent of the world’s population, arguably the most under-tapped resource in the developing world and there’s never been a priority with funds or with dedicated personnel at the United States State Department, so this will change that."
