The Future of the Feminism Watch

The election is over, and Joe Biden is the Vice President-elect now, which means we can stop doing the Biden Feminism Watch, right? Wrong. What kind of slackers do you think we are? It's like you don't even know us at all!

Seriously, we are going to keep the watch going, but we're going to shift the focus a little. Rather than spending so much time on the feminist stuff in Joe Biden's past (although we still have some of that up our sleeves), we're going to start looking more at the Obama/Biden transition - who they're appointing to serve in the new administration, what women-friendly changes they might make right away, and what the status is of a lot of the campaign promises that they made relating to that status of women. We're also going to do something that we kinda neglected to do during the election craziness - a Barack Obama edition of the feminism watch to round up all of the President-elect's positions on women's issues.

Here's a quick example. The online application form for jobs in the Obama-Biden administration contains this statement:

The Obama-Biden Transition Project does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, or any other basis of discrimination prohibited by law.

A commitment to diversity and non-discrimination in actions as well as words? It's like change we can believe in, or something. Stay tuned.
