US President Joe Biden on Monday will order a review of changes the previous administration made to on rules on how colleges should handle sexual assault allegations and formally establish a White House Gender Policy Council, officials said.

The council will work with other parts of the administration to address “barriers to women’s participation in the labor force, decreasing wage and wealth gaps, and addressing the caregiving needs of American families and supporting care workers,” the fact sheet said.

As of January, women accounted for slightly more than half of the 10 million jobs lost during the coronavirus crisis, even though they typically make up a little less than half the work force.

More than 2.5 million women left the labor force between February 2020 and January of this year, compared to 1.8 million men.

Biden will direct the council to submit a “government-wide strategy to address gender in policies, programs and budgets” and an annual report on progress, the White House said.
