‼️On this International Women's Day, ...

...let's talk about the critical importance of female foreign policy and its many benefits‼️


Female foreign policy is a strategy that recognizes the unique experiences of women and girls in decision-making processes and prioritizes their inclusion in policymaking. The implementation of female foreign policy can bring about numerous benefits, such as improved economic growth📈, greater peace☮️ and security👮🏼, and better health🩺 outcomes.


If you are interested in learning more about the impact of gender inequality and the benefits of female foreign policy, I highly recommend reading "The Cost of Sexism" by Professor Linda Scott (German: "Das weibliche Kapital"). This book provides invaluable insights into the challenges faced by women and girls around the world and offers practical solutions for achieving greater gender equality. (Trigger warning⚡️: it is not an easy read as some passages describe femicide, rape and other abuses.)


Scott argues that gender inequality and discrimination against women result in significant costs to society, while improving women's rights and promoting gender equality can lead to economic growth and development. The book presents evidence from various countries and sectors, highlighting the economic benefits of empowering women and promoting gender equality, such as increased productivity, innovation, and overall prosperity. The thesis is that creating a more equitable society by empowering women and girls is not only a moral imperative 🫵🏻, but also an economic imperative for building a better and richer world.


👉🏻 This International Women's Day, let us commit to promoting female foreign policy and working towards a more equitable and just world.


By prioritizing the needs and voices of women and girls, we can create a brighter future for all. 💡
