There are many issues Democrats and Republicans disagree on, but elevating women in peace negotiations should certainly not be one of them.
Just a few weeks ago, the United States under the Trump administration became the first country in the world with a Women, Peace and Security (WPS) comprehensive law (2017) and strategy (2019) bringing women to the negotiating table in global peace efforts. This is something to be widely celebrated.
I have proudly worked with women across the aisle to train, support and empower women around the world because ending poverty and violence against women, and increasing their participation and agency in all spheres of life should be a bipartisan issue everyone can get solidly behind,
The U.S. Women, Peace, and Security strategy shows just how far the elevation and participation of women has come. It is more than a token gesture to womens empowerment; it is a priority for U.S. national security and defense strategies. This means its not just good for women, its good for our country. Also, the WPS strategy calls for promoting and tracking womens meaningful participation in peace processes which U.N. Women defines as contributing in a way that is more than just representation and filling quotas. It means that women are at the table when negotiations are taking place, womens interests and lived experiences are fully reflected in peace processes, and that women are equally considered in recovery efforts in the aftermath in conflict.
According to the Council on Foreign Relations, the U.N, and other international bodies including women in peace and security processes will reduce conflict and advance stability in key regions . . .

Shockingly silly idea. How about we elevate the best people for every job. I am sick of the racism and sexism that pretends chromosomes or skin tone are relevant to job requirements, whether as a positive or as a negative. Both are simple sexism/racism and have no business in anything as important as business or politics.
The only area where the radical left pretends that chromosomes don't matter is in dating - the one area where they do matter.
“the first country in the world with a Women, Peace and Security (WPS) comprehensive law (2017) and strategy (2019) bringing women to the negotiating table in global peace efforts.”
It is so not a good thing.
Conservative women yes
Commies and socialist nuts. No
We had the nation’s leading woman in charge. She gave pallets of cash to Iran.
She allowed Iran to continue it’s ballistic missile and nuclear weapons operations.
Sorry, women are feelings based for the most part. And when you get a democRat person leading from that perspective, disaster lurks.
We need men in charge, and no not Leftist soy boys.
Know women. No peace.
Women should have every opportunity to be just as incompetent as men:
Peter Principle for one and all
Old Rush Limbaugh line delivered to Barbara Walters—
I am a women’s movement fan. Especially walking behind one of them.
It seems just a small step to Interfering in another countries elections.
