Feminist foreign policies place women and girls at the center of diplomatic decisions, with the ultimate goal of advancing gender equality around the world. In 2014, Sweden became the first country in the world to declare a Feminist Foreign Policy. Mexico became the first country in Latin America to adopt a Feminist Foreign Policy in 2020. While fairly recent developments, these policies are gaining momentum and setting examples for similar pathways for governments around the world.
