Women Leaders and Gender Parity

Beth Hand’s Letter to U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations: Women’s Entrepreneurship and Economic Empowerment Act of 2018

I advocated for passage of this bill to “improve programs and activities relating to women’s entrepreneurship and economic empowerment that are carried out by the U.S. Agency for International Development” in developing countries. The bill is the Women’s Entrepreneurship and Economic Empowerment (WEE) Act of 2018 (H.R. 5480).

Why? Because we are humanitarians, for increased peace and security, and because if you, like me, are a female and lead a business, it’s important to advocate for other women just as others advocated for us and made our lives and businesses possible. Read my letter of thanks and encouragement to the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations to pass this bill. As of January 10, 2019, it passed. Thank you to the White House, the Senator Committee on Foreign Relations, and my Virginia senator, Senator Tim Kaine, for passing this important bill.
