ADG: Measure to help world’s women signed into law; Boozman lauds USAID plan

Written by Press Release

January 10, 2019

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump signed legislation Wednesday aimed at helping women in the developing world rise from poverty.

The measure passed despite strong opposition from at least one conservative organization, which said the law would undermine faith-based aid groups by codifying “gender policies” it considers harmful. White House lobbying enabled the measure to advance, despite the criticism.
