International Women of Courage Award goes to biological male


First Lady Jill Biden and Secretary of State Antony Blinken presented a biological male who is transgender an award created for women, during a ceremony recognizing International Women’s Day, which was March 8.

The annual International Women of Courage Awards ceremony at the White House recognized “11 extraordinary women from around the world who are working to build a brighter future for all,” according to the State Department’s press release.

Among those recognized was Alba Rueda, Argentina’s current special envoy for sexual orientation and gender identity in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, International Trade and Worship.

Rueda, who was born male, was the first Argentine undersecretary for diversity policies in the newly created Ministry of Women, Gender, and Diversity. 

“Ms. Rueda was the driving force behind Argentina’s executive order on the transgender labor quota in the public sector which was converted into the Transgender Labor Quota Act,” the State Department wrote, applauding transgender quotas in the workplace.

“She previously worked in the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights in their National Institute against Discrimination, Xenophobia and Racism (INADI) as well as the Argentine Secretariat for Human Rights.  She is one of the founders of Argentina Trans Women (MTA) and actively engages with Notitrans, the first transgender magazine in Argentina. 

“She actively campaigned to change the name of the National Women’s Conference to the ‘Plurinational Conference of Women and Lesbian, Cross-Dresser, Transgender, Bisexual, Intersex and Non-Binary Persons’ to include diverse, dissident, and racialized identities,” said the State Department.

“Her activism led her to fight for the Marriage Equality Act, the Gender Identity Act, and the Diana Sacayán and Lohana Berkins Act on the Promotion of Access to Formal Employment by Cross-Dresser, Transsexual and Transgender Persons.  Her hope is to establish an LGBTQI+ foreign policy agenda and mainstream it into the various negotiation fora, including into multilateral fora and bilateral relations as well as represent the Global South,” the description said.

Rueda was described by the emcee of the ceremony as a “transgender woman who was kicked out of classrooms, barred for sitting for exams, refused job opportunities, subjected to violence, and rejected by her family. But in the face of these challenges, she worked to end violence and discrimination against the LGBTQ plus community in Argentina.” 

Others recognized for the award this year were women such as Professor Danièle Darlan, who is the former president of the Central African Republic’s Constitutional Court and who is her country’s most influential female public figure; Doris Ríos, an indigenous leader from Costa Rica working to improve indigenous lives; Meaza Mohammed, a veteran Ethiopian journalist, is the founder of Roha TV, an independent YouTube-based news and information channel; and Hadeel Abdel Aziz, a defender of Jordan’s most marginalized, including juveniles, refugees, migrants, and survivors of sexual and gender-based violence; and other women.

“Now in its 17th year, the Secretary of State’s IWOC Award recognizes women from around the globe who have demonstrated exceptional courage, strength, and leadership in advocating for peace, justice, human rights, gender equity and equality, and the empowerment of women and girls, in all their diversity – often at great personal risk and sacrifice.  Since March 2007, the Department of State has recognized more than 180 women from more than 80 countries with the IWOC Award. U.S. diplomatic missions overseas nominate one woman of courage from their respective host countries and finalists are selected and approved by senior Department officials.  Following the IWOC ceremony, the awardees will participate in an in-person International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) exchange to connect with American counterparts in cities across the United States and strengthen their global networks of women leaders,” the State Department said.


  1. The word “man” never needs to be preceded by the adjective “biological.” Men are biologically male by definition; that’s why they call them “men.” Leftist idealogues use the adjective to virtue signal their conformity to the agenda of lies…. promoted by the father of all lies.

  2. Again the man on his right looks more beautiful being himself than he does. My favorite characteristic about a man he does’nt act like me or try acting
    like us females.

  3. The only thing democrats hate more than biological women are those women south of the Mason Dixon line.

  4. I had to look up what the I and A stand for. Why are these people so obsessed with sex, or the lack thereof????

  5. That’s funny right there. And they wonder why they lose credibility, why no one takes them serious. Gone are the days when women burn their bras, or free the nip, now if they want to be a man, all they got to do is sew one on. I’m not anti woman by all means, I’m for women being women and men being men and kids being kids. If you want to do the freak stuff please do it behind closed and locked doors.

  6. Of course. Anyone see any mental illness there? Essentially a phony reward situation. Boycott the reward.

  7. Just more proof that men are better at everything than women………including being a woman.

    • LMF, again with adjectives? Please realize that by saying “actual women,” rather than just “women,” you are implying the guy is some kind of woman other than an actual woman. Thereby, you are actually supporting the woke fake woman agenda. Your statement should be: how insulting to women. Period, full-stop.

  8. More indoctrination and pushing of the issue by the LGBTQI+ mafia/media/entertainment industry to try and make this matter “normal” and accepted by the general public. It won’t be long before a biological woman will be declared by the State Department the winner of the Intl. Men of Courage award in the near future.

  9. Men were erased in the 1990s, children in the 2000s, and now women in the 2020s….
    Do all of you that voted for Biden and any democrat or rino just “feel” so much better? No more mean tweets…
    I stand firm that i use NO pronouns (especially at work), and i call trans men “men”, they are not a woman and never, ever, ever will be. Deal with the reality of your birth, all of you. You were born perfect, stop f@@@ing it up.

  10. What a slap in the face of all biological females. I could care less how these alphabet characters want to dress or act, but I do care about what the walk society is doing to biological women. The true American woman had better take a stand soon and weed out this fast train puss that is being rammed down their throats. Biological women are a very important part of human kind. If somebody wants to act different then they can do that, but don’t push their values on the rest of us.

  11. The not so brilliant “Dr.” Jill can’t tell a man from a woman. Hilarious and scary at the same time.

  12. Women are women, men are men. Nothing can be done to change that fact and these idiots that are going through life pretending to be something they can NEVER be are only fooling themselves. Those joining with them in this charade are only making the world a worse place for the rest of us and fundamentally denying women the right to be free of these imposters into their world of sports and society.

  13. Republicans who worry about US spending on the Ukraine War had better adopt some thoughtful reality! The US Armed Forces, with or without the rest of NATO, would have at best reached a standstill with Putin somewhere inside Poland had the Ukrainians lacked the courage they have shown us. We have been beaten in wars for at least a generation and it’s very clear to everyone why that is! The United States could not begin to win WWII today, and the homosexual and trans-sexual movements are both a cause and an indicator. The Ukrainians are so far saving the United States from a very serious defeat and losses of American lives.

  14. Where is the Non-Binary Bravery Award that is owed to Sam Brinton, the dog-faced and red-lipsticked Department of Energy official who has a special (sexual?) proclivity for acquiring his/her designer luggage ensembles from airport baggage belts. I place all of this confused and sordid business directly at the feet of our pagan ‘elites’ in education, media, Hollywood, religion, corporations, and politics.

    When thinking about our nation’s ‘elite’ politicians, the name of Lisa Murkowski, Alaska’s senior Senator, comes immediately to mind. Brett Kavanaugh and Donald Trump were not good enough for her (for ‘they/them’?), and now Fredo Corleone is seated behind the desk in the Oval Office – Lisa’s choice, and the choice of our nation’s elite.

  15. Everyone with a thinking brain already knows that the Biden White House is run by lesbians, homosexuals and trann*es. LGBTQ defiance to the core. We are experiencing very abnormal times.

  16. As a woman this is the highest form of disrespect and delusion.
    May they all rot in hell cause that’s where they all are going!

  17. Do not call March “womens month” when males are praised and allowed to be part of it.
    Men are men, women are women. See what happens when you further a mental condition and promote it?? Now these things think they can be part of Miss America Agents and now, women’s rights.
    Women all over, stand up and fight this or you will dissappear. These people want no babies, no women and no family. All they wish for, is debauchery.

  18. Wow! In my 79th year I feel like I have moved into the realm of the Twilight Zone. And it ain’t pretty.

  19. Absolute, beyond-the-beyond, stupidity. Guess we are increasing “15-minutes of fame” to 24/7.

  20. Orwell’s 1984 was supposed to be a warning, not a how to guide.
    But, here we are, changing the meaning of words to suit the whims of the party. Woman means what we want it to mean when we want it to mean it.

  21. LGBTQI+ ?

    Nutbar only has two syllables. Much quicker. Another comes to mind that only has one. Not long ago there was a much more efficient nomenclature and I think it’s coming back.

  22. Migrants are criminal invader illegal aliens. Gays are not gay, they are homosexuals. Homosexuality is immoral and a sin. Transsexuals are mentally ill. There is no such thing called “gender”. It’s sex, male and female.

  23. These People are Mentally ill and sick, they are trying to force sick and deviant behavior and ideas into society, all their actually doing is making many people take a good hard look at what kinda weird sadistic loons they really are, I notice they seem to enjoy this attention as if it normalizes them, No it doesn’t normalize anything,all this nonsense will do is eventually just create more backlash against the ones who don’t require special treatment, or demand special treatment, these people a mentally ill pure and simple!

  24. “Real” women are being marginalized. If you are a real female you are nothing more than a child bearing person, or a former child bearing person. And to think at one time how strong the #MeToo movement was (in reality it was assembled to go after Kavanaugh and once that was done quickly disbanded).
