A Conversation with Valerie M. Hudson in recognition of International Women’s Day
Can the security of women predict the security of states and the likelihood of conflict and war? Yes, indeed. The prevalence of institutionalized gender-based violence and other deterrents to women’s well-being and their overall status in society correspond significantly to state and global stability. Ms. Hudson’s presentation will clarify this relationship and address the many implications of the overwhelming data supporting the link.
Her remarks will be of tremendous interest to anyone interested in the dynamics of international security, foreign policy and the status of women. The insights will apply across a broad swath of issues of pressing interest to Americans around the globe (and to the citizens of every country in which we reside).
