The Department of States Plan to Implement the US Strategy on Women, Peace and Security

  • Author(s):
  • Department of State

The United States faces a complex global security environment characterized by instability, conflict, record levels of displacement, well-armed non-state actors, and great power competition.

The United States’ Strategy on Women, Peace, and Security (WPS) of 2019 focuses on improving the effectiveness of our foreign policy and assistance efforts across the board by proactively integrating the needs and perspectives of women, and empowering women to contribute their talents and energies to international peace, security, and prosperity.

This strategy was developed in response to the Women, Peace, and Security Act of 2017, which established the United States as the first country in the world with a comprehensive law on women, peace, and security. Its integration into our foreign policy toolkit will strengthen our efforts to prevent, manage, resolve, and recover from conflict, thereby advancing our national security priorities.
