WAND endorses Feminist Foreign Policy resolution
WAND joined over 20 organizations in endorsing a House resolution which supports Feminist Foreign Policy, led by Co-Chairs of the Democratic Women’s Caucus Congresswomen Jackie Speier (CA-14) and Lois Frankel (FL-21), and Co-Chair of the Pro-Choice Caucus Barbara Lee (CA-13). All three are former Women Legislators' Lobby members.
“A feminist approach to foreign policy demands that we reject oppressive policies and elevate tools to promote peace by prioritizing racial and environmental justice, human rights, and gender equity. Doing so will require a whole of government approach, including a commitment to diversity and gender parity in hiring and promotion in the national security and foreign policy sectors, adoption of zero-tolerance policies toward gender-based violence and workplace harassment, and access to reproductive health care,” said Rep. Speier.
