If you read through Joe Biden’s recently-released “women agenda” it’s almost as if he hasn’t taken a close look at his own vice presidential contenders.
“Joe Biden is going to build our country back better after this economic crisis and that includes ensuring we get closer to full inclusion of and equality for women,” the piece on Medium stated. “Women — particularly women of color — have never had a fair shot to get ahead in this country.”
That’s kind of a head scratcher. While some inequities still exist, especially for women who balance children and career, the tremendous progress women have made is undeniable. Just look at how the Democratic presidential contender promised in March that he would choose a woman as his running mate and pretty easily came up with a list of successful women, many of them women of color who have managed to excel in their careers.
