Woman and Foreign Policy Lecture Series with Jennifer Klein and Rachel Vogelstein - Women’s Rights are Human Rights

  • 6:10PM to 7:00PM
  • Room 122

Over the past two decades, the United States government has developed a comprehensive policy framework that recognizes gender equality as a pillar of U.S. foreign policy and international law. This lecture series will examine the growing body of evidence demonstrating that advancing the status of women and girls is critical to U.S. foreign policy interests. The series will also introduce and analyze policies to integrate gender into U.S. foreign policy, such as the U.S. National Action Plan on Women, Peace, and Security; the U.S. Strategy to Prevent and Respond to Gender-Based Violence Globally; the Quadrennial Diplomacy and Development Review; and State Department and USAID policy guidance on gender. Issues covered will include gender and economic growth, peace and security, political participation, health and education, violence and human rights, and international institutions and treaties.
