Christian Science Monitor Examines Feminist Foreign Policy In Practice
Christian Science Monitor: Can foreign policy be feminist? Sweden says yes.
“A doctor in a sparsely furnished Nairobi clinic, providing a young woman with birth control. A job-training center throwing open its doors to women in Armenia. A United Nations delegate urging the assembly to consider gender in its global climate change policy. If those are the answers, then this is the question: What, exactly, does a feminist foreign policy look like? It’s a question that has been floated many times since October 2014, when Sweden’s foreign minister, Margot Wallstrom, announced that her country planned to become the first in the world to put feminism at the heart of its foreign affairs…” (Brown, 2/7).
