IADLC OFFICIAL STATEMENT:

 

DEROGATORY COMMENTS IN THE WALL STREET JOURNAL OP-ED REGARDING DR. JILL GIACOPPA BIDEN’S DORCTORAL DEGREE

 

 

The Italian American Democratic Leadership Council (IADLC) condemns the sexist and anti-intellectual attack about our future First Lady, Dr. Jill Giacoppa Biden written in an OP-ED by Joseph Epstein of The Wall Street Journal on December 11th.

 

The misogynistic and condescending nature of Epstein’s commentary is an insult to the hard work and effort Dr. Biden has dedicated to her professional career as well as the quality of education for her students. Mr. Epstein should be ashamed of his baseless attack on an individual who has given her life to educating and supporting others. This is a slight against all women who strive to attain a higher-level education.

 

The IADLC recognizes and celebrates the accomplishments of women like Dr. Biden, a role model who gives inspiration to not just Italian Americans but all Americans in how they can achieve their dreams with grace and pride.
