Biden Issues Gender Policy Orders on International Women’s Day

A new executive order from President Biden could change how colleges handle sexual misconduct.

Biden will direct the Department of Education to review Trump administration changes to Title IX, regulations that prohibit sex discrimination in federal institutions.

Biden promised to strengthen Title IX while campaigning for the presidency. The Title IX review could ultimately impact how public universities handle allegations of sexual misconduct.

Biden is also signing an order that would create a White House Gender Policy Council.

The announcement of these orders comes on International Women’s Day.
