Where would Hillary’s foreign policy fit into this feminist foreign policy strategy? Libya, Honduras —not exactly soft policy, would you say?
I would prefer that both sexes recognize that dictating policy to other countries does not work. What might work would be acknowledging our own faults and instituting policies that would rid us of poverty, racism, violence, and sexism. Telling the rest of the world how to behave and ignoring our own behavior makes us look like idiots, very much like characters encountered in Jonathan Swift’s book, Gulliver’s Travels.
