A New Vision: Gender, Justice, National Security

New Vision Gender Justice National Security

On April 3rd, in partnership with Ploughshares Fund, Compton Foundation, and Rockefeller Brothers Foundation, Our Secure Future launched a new report titled A New Vision: Gender. Justice. National Security. The report is formed of a collection of essays from women experts in their field, who offer their own, unique vantage point into what a more diverse, intersectional, inclusive foreign policy might look like. Each individual piece “shines a light on a broken system that places nuclear weapons and militarized responses above the needs of the people they are supposed to protect.”

The conference featured opening remarks from Mary Kaszynski and Joe Cirincione, followed by two separate panel presentations:

Advancing Policy: Developing Policy Solutions Through Diverse Lenses

  • Dr. Carol Cohn, Consortium on Gender, Security and Human Rights
  • Marissa Conway, Centre for Feminist Foreign Policy
  • Maggie Feldman-Pilth, NatSecGirlSquad
  • Cecili Thompson Williams, Beyond the Bomb

Transforming Thinking: Improving Diversity in the Peace and Security Field

  • Ambassador Laura Holgate, Nuclear Threat Initiative
  • Heather Hurlburt, New America
  • Ambassador Bonnie Jenkins, Women of Color Advancing Peace, Security and Conflict Transformation
  • Chantal de Jonge Oudraat, Women in International Security
