Washington President Biden on Monday issued an executive order creating a Gender Policy Council at the White House that aims to advance gender equality throughout the federal government, a move that coincides with International Women's Day.

The executive order establishing the new council is one of two Mr. Biden signed that establishes a focus within the Biden administration on promoting women's rights in the U.S. and worldwide.

Led by two co-chairs, Julissa Reynoso, chief of staff to first lady Jill Biden, and Jennifer Klein, who will also serve as its executive director, the Gender Policy Council will play roles in domestic and foreign policy development, according to the White House. The president said in a statement commemorating International Women's Day that his order creating the council ensures "that every domestic and foreign policy we pursue rests on a foundation of dignity and equity for women."

The White House said the effort "will be an essential part of the Biden-Harris Administration's plan to ensure we build a more equal and just society by aggressively protecting the rights and unique needs of those who experience multiple and intersecting forms of discrimination, including individuals who are Black, Latina, Native, Asian American and Pacific Islander, people with disabilities, and LGBTQI+."
