Last week Valerie Jarrett, Senior Advisor to President Obama and Chair of the White House Council on Women and Girls, and Preeta Bansal, General Counsel and Senior Policy Advisor in the U.S. Office of Management and Budget, hosted a White House Webchat to highlight findings from the recently released report Women in America: Indicators of Social and Economic Well-Being. Here at NCRW we were thrilled to see Jarrett and Bansal advocating for the same policies and programs that are on our agenda.

Our Opportunity for International Women’s Day

By Tiffany Dufu*

I took the helm at The White House Project at an interesting moment for women. Last week’s report from the White House, which Kate Meyer mentioned in yesterday’s post, coupled with a political, economic and social environment that is best described as extremely volatile across the globe, demonstrates how, on this International Women’s Day 2011, we are presented with a unique opportunity. 

We have the opportunity to be responsible.

Passionate Politics: The Life & Work of Charlotte Bunch

A New One-Hour Documentary by Tami Gold

This new film tells the story of Charlotte Bunch, from idealistic young civil rights organizer to lesbian activist, to internationally-recognized leaders of a campaign to put women's rights on the global human rights agenda. Charlotte has been both a product and creator of her times: every chapter in her life is a chapter in the story of the modern feminist activism, from its roots in the 1960s struggles for social justice to international campaigns against gender-based violence today.
