(CNSNews.com) - Former Vice President Joe Biden says that if he is elected president his administration will address “the unique needs of…lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and queer women.”

“Biden knows that addressing the challenges faced by women and girls is more than just a campaign promise--it’s an imperative if the Administration is going to succeed in its broader efforts to make sure the government and economy work for all Americans,” says a page on Biden’s campaign website.

“Biden will ensure that his administration aggressively protects the rights and addresses the unique needs of all women, including Black women, Latina women, Native women, Asian American and Pacific Islander women, women with disabilities, and lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and queer women,” it says.

Here is an excerpt from “The Biden Agenda for Women” page on Joe Biden’s campaign website that says his administration will address the needs of “lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer women:”

“Biden will also structure his Administration to ensure women’s issues remain at the forefront of policy efforts. Biden knows that addressing the challenges faced by women and girls is more than just a campaign promise — it’s an imperative if the Administration is going to succeed in its broader efforts to make sure the government and economy work for all Americans. Biden will ensure that his administration aggressively protects the rights and addresses the unique needs of all women, including Black women, Latina women, Native women, Asian American and Pacific Islander women, women with disabilities, and lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and queer women. The Obama-Biden Administration created the White House Council on Women and Girls to make sure the federal government was doing its best to tackle issues like equal pay, paid family leave, and poverty in an effective manner. The Trump Administration then disbanded it and put nothing in its place. Biden will create a White House Council on Gender Equality, chaired by a senior member of the Executive Office of the President tasked solely with guiding and coordinating government policy that impacts women and girls, such as economic policy, health care, racial justice, gender-based violence, and foreign policy.”
