ABSTRACT

United States Strategy on Women, Peace, and Security   [open pdf - 306KB]

From the Introduction: "The United States is unapologetic in championing the principles upon which our country was founded: individual liberty, free enterprise, equal justice under the law, and the dignity of every human life. The President's National Security Strategy (NSS) highlighted that these principles form the foundation of our most enduring alliances, since governments that respect citizens' rights 'remain the best vehicle for prosperity, human happiness, and peace.' Further, the NSS also noted that 'governments that fail to treat women equally do not allow their societies to reach their potential [while] societies that empower women to participate fully in civic and economic life are more prosperous and peaceful.'"
