Women need to play a larger role in global peace negotiations and conflict prevention talks, and this bill would lead to a comprehensive strategy that ensures they’re fairly represented in U.S. negotiations.
There doesn’t need to be a concerted effort to get women more involved in peace negotiations. If they have risen to positions in the State Department or other agencies that merit it, they’ll have a seat at the table.
