(FamilyConservationPAC.com) – As part of the White House’s Women’s History Month celebration, President Joe Biden’s administration presented a biological man with the International Woman of Courage Award on Wednesday.
One of 11 “exceptional women” recognized during an awards event by the Biden administration is a guy named Alba Rueda, who identifies as a woman.
The International Women of Courage Awards celebration was hosted this year by Secretary of State Antony Blinken and First Lady Jill Biden.
According to the State Department, “exceptional women from all around the world who are fighting to achieve a brighter future for all” are honored during the ceremony.
Rueda is a well-known transgender activist from Argentina who works for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, International Trade, and Commerce as the nation’s Special Envoy on Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity.
The Transgender Labor Quota Act of Argentina, which mandates that one percent of public sector positions in the nation be designated for transgender people, is said to have been pushed through by Rueda.
According to the State Department, Rueda has set out to
“create an LGBTQI+ foreign policy agenda and mainstream it into the various negotiation fora, including into multilateral fora and bilateral ties, as well as represent the Global South.”
Alba Rueda, a transgender woman from Argentina, “was expelled from classes, denied access to tests, denied employment chances, subjected to assault, and rejected by her family,” Biden’s Defense Secretary Kathleen Hicks stated as Rueda accepted the honor.
“But despite these obstacles, she fought to abolish discrimination and violence against the LGBTQI+ population in Argentina.”

Many transgender people have been promoted to senior positions in Biden’s administration, notably Assistant Secretary for Health and Human Services Rachel Levine.
Hadeel Abdel Aziz, a civil society activist from Jordan, Bakhytzhan Toregozhina, an Ethiopian journalist, and Meaza Mohammed, were a few additional honorees.
“The recipients will engage in an IVLP exchange in person to build relationships with American counterparts in different American cities and strengthen their global networks of women leaders,” the State Department announced.
Should transgender people be given women’s awards, especially when celebrating International Women of Courage?
