The Women, Peace and Security Agenda Under the Trump Administration: Undercutting
Advances with a Return to Masculine Militarism

By Barbara Frey, Director of the Human Rights Program in the College of Liberal Arts at the University of Minnesota and Lindsey Greising, an independent immigration lawyer.

President Trump’s bombastic first speech to the United Nations (UN) General Assembly on September 19 is yet another signal that the current U.S. administration is much more focused on war than on peace. Threats to “totally destroy North Korea” as well as the tossing aside of a nuanced Iran treaty like it was just a bad real estate deal are bad omens for stability, human rights, and respectful bilateral and multilateral negotiations. Trump’s view of security is also a bad omen for women.
