FeMALE Diplomacy - Women in Foreign Policy
Only a few women sit at the negotiating table when it comes to war and peace. Foreign and security policy remains a largely male dominated domain in politics. As of November 2020, 10 women are serving as Head of State and 13 are serving as Head of Government. Only 21 per cent of government ministers worldwide were women. The five most commonly held portfolios by women ministers are: Social Affairs; followed by Family/Children/Youth/Elderly/Disabled; Environment/Natural Resources/Energy; Employment/Labor/Vocational Training; and Trade/Industry.

In 2018, German Member of Parliament, Elisabeth Motschmann has brought together a group of women active and successful in Foreign Policy for the publication “FeMALE Diplomacy” to underline the added-value of women in Foreign Policy but also highlight the obstacles they have encountered along their way. Three years later, we discuss with some of the co-authors, diplomats and politicians the current state of play for women in foreign policy. What has changed? Where are we heading? Who and what hinders and helps?
