The Biden Administration's Women-Led Push For Investment In 'Care Infrastructure'

President Biden wants to make a massive investment in infrastructure, and not just in roads and bridges. His administration is proposing big investments in "care infrastructure" — investments designed to help women succeed in the workforce.

Three women leading the administration's effort speak to NPR: Janelle Jones, the chief economist at the Department of Labor; Heather Boushey, a member of the White House Council of Economic Advisers; and Jennifer Klein, co-chair of the White House Gender Policy Council.

Additional reporting this episode on women and the workforce from NPR's Scott Horsley and Melissa Block. Hannah Rosin spoke to NPR's Michel Martin.
