Talking Policy: Swanee Hunt on Inclusive Security
This article was originally published by World Policy Journal.
In spring 1994, Rwanda was ripped apart by a genocide that left nearly a million dead. While news of the catastrophe reached all corners of the globe, the nation’s recovery and the key role of women are less often featured in the media. Swanee Hunt, former U.S. Ambassador to Austria, shares the stories of scores of women who helped rebuild that society in her upcoming book Rwandan Women Rising. World Policy Journal spoke with Ambassador Hunt, who reflected on the importance of including women in peace processes and her lifelong dedication to empowering female activists and policymakers.
