The Women’s Entrepreneurship and Economic Empowerment (WEEE) Act is designed to help women improve their lives, care for their families, and contribute to global economic growth. It does so by eliminating harmful social and culture norms so women can improve their access to resources, including financial services and increase their decision-making power.

Currently, more than one billion women are excluded from formal financial services. Many cannot open bank accounts, seek loans or credit, or manage their funds because of antiquated legal and or social beliefs about gender roles. The WEEE Act makes it the policy of the United States to reduce gender disparities in access to resources so that women are able to provide for their families no matter the social and cultural norms or circumstances.

Additionally, one in three women globally experiences sexual, emotional, and or physical violence during her lifetime. Gender-based violence can also prevent women from engaging successfully in economic activities. When women face harassment or violence in the workplace, or when they suffer from injuries or trauma as a result of domestic violence, their economic livelihoods are affected. The WEEE Act makes it U.S. policy to strive to eliminate gender-based violence and mitigate its effects so that women and their children can live free from fear and enjoy equal access to opportunities.

This legislation also ensures that women can access land and own property. Sadly, women own less than 20 percent of the world’s land. This is staggering if you consider that half of the world’s population is women. More than 400 million of them farm and produce the majority of the world’s food supply, yet female farmers lack equal rights to own land in more than 90 countries.

Most of the world’s 1.2 billion people who live in absolute poverty are women and girls. Women lack opportunities for developing confidence and decision-making power – and they are under-represented in senior roles and economic leadership positions in developing and developed countries. The WEEE Act requires the U.S. Government to maintain a rigorous gender analysis in foreign assistance programs so that we have the necessary data to address critical barriers and leave no woman behind. When women lift themselves out of poverty, they pull their families and communities up with them.

Ivanka is helping to make the UN’s Agenda 21 a reality.

Am tired of a feminism that prioritizes adult women. Really tired of it.

Why is it women need to “provide for their families”? If it’s because they’re war widows, or husband is unable or unwilling to provide, I understand.

However, the unwed “baby momma” culture so freely embraced by women in the U S is not acceptable at all in Muslim majority countries especially. And why is it in some of these countries, since the article stated economic disparities, women actually do have financial opportunities? Algeria & Turkey are such societies that readily come to mind.

And if even in those where women really do live more restrictive lives—for example, Somalia—how is it I watched on French language tv Somali women making their way to Italy & taking public transit to work as home health aides for elderly & disabled? And Italian social workers giving them tough love like “If you don’t speak better Italian, how will you qualify for better work?”

Am really tired of a feminism that focuses on adults & work opportunities would rather see one that addresses actual barbarism—female infanticide & genital mutilation of girls no older than 6; acid disfigurement of those who reject arranged marriages; marriage of those just in the double digit years & death in childbirth of such children; illiteracy and killing of girls to reclaim a family honor that probably never existed.

I question anything that supports the UN.

Is there anything here we don’t already do?

Are you saying you are not a “globalist”? For SHAME Ishmael! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

So the WEEE act is about giving women more free stuff? Wow. It’s like that’s all feminists want. More free stuff for themselves. Unfortunately, nothing in life is free. Someone else is paying for their free stuff. But it’s not like they care about anyone else. They’re a truly rotten, self-centered group.

No it is about…GLOBAL economic control…Erp… I mean growth. :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

The problem with modern feminism is that it promotes “freedom for women” particularly freedom from marriage along with of course sexual promiscuity which together lead us to millions and millions of fatherless kids raising themselves.

When feminism was about equality under the law for women it was a wonderful thing but somewhere over the last few decades it just became a vessel to promote abortion and the destruction of the nuclear family.

Funny how social conservatives were derided and called crazy in the 80’s and 90’s when they were talking about this and we were promised it was just alarmist BS.

Replacing husbands with the “benevolent hand of government”.
