Week #12: Get In the Know
- Trump seems to be doubling down on his anti-women legislative crusade. Trump revoked the Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces order, which will effect equal pay and sexual harassment. He has also cut funding for the UN Population Fund, which has been critical in ending deaths in childbirth in over a hundred countries.
- Neil Gorsuch was confirmed as the next Supreme Court Justice on Friday.
- Bill O’Reilly settled 5 sexual harassment allegations while at Fox News. When asked about these allegations, our President, who just spoke about April as Sexual Assault Awareness Month, said “I don’t think Bill did anything wrong.”
- Did you participate in the Women’s March on Washington? PEN America is honoring the Women’s March with the Goodale Freedom of Expression Courage Award!
- Steve Bannon has been removed from his position on the National Security Council. While Bannon may still have a place in the administration, at least he is out of the Situation Room.
