Welcome to the women and US foreign policy hub. The aim of this site is to provide a platform for research into the multidimensional relationship between women and US foreign policy. What, for example, is it like for a woman to work for the US State Department? Does gender inform US foreign policy making, and if so, in what ways? And how does US foreign policy, whether asked or imposed, shape the lives of women that are its recipients? These and other questions are to be explored in this hub.
Please read the About page for further details of the project.

The Madeleine Albright interview for the Women and US Foreign Policy interview project has just been approved to be released for the digital repository. Albright was the US Ambassador to the UN and the Secretary of State during the Clinton administration (1993-2001). She talks about a number of issues that she has encountered during her career ranging from personal gender discrimination to the Rwanda genocide. Read the transcript to find out why she states that “the US gets blamed for Rwanda, when I think that that was the UN’s fault”.
