National Woman Faith Leader Commends Biden Announcement of Female Vice President​

Washington, D.C. — During a presidential debate, former Vice President Biden promised to select a female running mate for his presidential campaign.​

Rev. Jennifer Butler, CEO, Faith in Public Life (Washington, DC):

“I’m glad to hear former Vice President Biden’s promise to select a female running mate. It’s overdue. Our country operates below our potential because we do not fully embrace women’s leadership. God created us all equal, and equity demands an equal place for women at the highest reaches of our government. When women lead, we all benefit.”​
