Hillary Clinton was the first Secretary of State to make women a formal focus of American foreign policy, says Texas A&M University Professor Valerie Hudson. Hudson says Clinton articulated the “Hillary Doctrine,” i.e., that “the subjugation of women is a direct threat to the security of the United States.” This integral relationship between the security of women and the security of the nations in which they live has been studied at length by Hudson, who explores the topic in a new book titled “The Hillary Doctrine: Sex and American Foreign Policy.” To interview Professor Hudson, contact Susan Robertson, Bush School of Government and Public Service, at [email protected], (979) 862-8845.
