U.N. Dispatch Examines Canada’s ‘First Feminist International Assistance Policy’

U.N. Dispatch: This What a Feminist Foreign Policy Looks Like
Penelope Starr, a strategy and communications professional and U.N. Dispatch correspondent, reports on Canada’s “first feminist international assistance policy,” which “is very likely the first explicitly feminist aid policy ever officially launched by a donor country.” Starr concludes, “With the reinstatement of reactionary policies such as the global gag rule, the timing for Canada’s new policy to launch couldn’t have been better — the sharp contrast with the current American approach makes it appear all the more bold and ambitious” (6/12).
