What Do Americans Think About a US Feminist Foreign Policy Agenda?

59% of respondents did not think that the people making U.S. foreign policy decisions shared their beliefs and interests

In a recent poll, One Earth Future Foundation’s Women, Peace and Security initiative (Our Secure Future) asked 1,500 registered voters in the United States 3 questions:

  • In the past decade, do you think that the people who make U.S. foreign policy and national security decisions have generally shared your beliefs and interests?
  • Do you think that women are sufficiently represented in the U.S. government when it comes to making decisions about foreign policy and national security?
  • Do you think of yourself as a "feminist"?

Almost 60% of the respondents did not think that the people making U.S foreign policy decisions shared their beliefs and interests. Less than 50% thought women are sufficiently represented in the U.S. government among foreign policy and national security decision makers. And almost 60% did not consider themself a feminist.
