What is Feminist Foreign Policy?
The foundation of feminist foreign policy is the belief that long-term peace and stability depend on gender equity and equitable participation.
Along these lines, it acknowledges that not all social groups have equal access to political involvement, opportunities, and resources on a global scale.
Besides that, it also works to eliminate the hindrances that cause this disparity, like power systems that disadvantage particular groups.
