The Federal Trade Commission has contributed a Report to the White House Council on Women and Girls, which can be found as a link to this press release.
By enhancing consumer welfare, the FTC’s mission touches and improves the lives of American women, children, and families in countless ways. The Report focuses on discrete FTC program areas that have a particular impact on women and children. The Report highlights five areas, describing, for each, recent FTC law enforcement actions or policy initiatives as well as available consumer and business education materials: health care for women and children; marketing to children and adolescents; consumer credit; entrepreneurship and business opportunities; and family pocketbook issues.
