MSFS 724 - Gender in Foreign Policy
Women are no longer "hidden figures" in foreign policy. New laws, including in the US, require that defense, diplomacy, and development efforts include a gender lens. We will begin this module by exploring the under-examined roles of women in the US, from World Wars to present day. We will also assess the development of feminist foreign policy by Sweden and Canada, as well as trends towards gender sensitive foreign policy around the world. Throughout the module, we will challenge conventional notions of women’s roles and explore how masculinity and femininity pervade foreign policy decision-making.
