A women's group has a few concerns about the things President-elect Joe Biden wants to get to work on as soon as he's in the Oval Office.
Kelsey Bolar, senior policy analyst for Independent Women's Forum (IWF), is particularly concerned about two items on his legislative agenda.
"The first is a bill called the Protecting the Right to Organize Act, or PRO Act, which has already passed the House of Representatives," she begins. "This bill would fundamentally change the way Americans are able to do business by restricting your ability to work for yourself as an independent contractor or freelancer."
Bolar recognizes that for several years now, and for a number of reasons, including the fluctuating economy, people have been working freelance jobs.
"There are millions of Americans, many of them women, who do not want to be tied by the traditional bounds of a nine-to-five job," Bolar tells One News Now. "They would much prefer the ability to make their own schedule and choose their own clients, which is why the gig economy has become so popular. But the PRO Act would take this basic American ability to work for yourself away."
The policy analyst is also no fan of the Equality Act as it currently stands.
"We know there has been a long push on the left to really change what it means to be a biological female," Bolar continues. "They want Americans to be able to identify by the gender not based on their biological sex but how they choose to identify, and this is a huge threat to girls and women in area of sports."
To date, there are already cases where biological females have lost competitions and scholarship opportunities to biological boys.
"The Equality Act would cement this into federal law and is therefore a huge threat to women and girls across the country," warns Bolar.
Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) has fought for biological female athletes in court, the argument being that having to compete against biological males puts them at risk of losing competitions and scholarship opportunities.
"I think that is extremely concerning for the future of women's sports and would reverse nearly 50 years of gains for women under Title IX," says Christiana Holcomb, an attorney for the Alliance Defending Freedom.
