Feminist diplomacy, from a mobilising slogan to a real dynamic of change?

07.04.2021 / Created by (EMWF)

This document follows on from the report of the High Council for Equality entitled "Feminist Diplomacy, from a mobilizing slogan to a real dynamic of change?”, Delivered to the Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs and to the Minister Delegate to the Prime Minister, responsible for Equality between Women and Men, Diversity and Equal Opportunities, on November 18, 2020 .

In this report, the High Council for Equality sets out a definition of the concept of feminist diplomacy, mobilized by France since 2018 to qualify its actions as foreign policy. Feminist diplomacy hinges on universal feminism against all forms of relativism, whether religious, cultural, identity or political, and strives to defend women’s rights wherever they are non-existent, insufficient or violated.

Gender equality and women’s freedom are, it must be constantly reaffirmed, a component and a condition of democracy.

This report establishes a first inventory of French feminist diplomacy and formulates 19 recommendations intended to strengthen its framework and its implementation.
