    Default Sweden says it will pursue a feminist foreign policy to counter macho Russian aggression

    And some of you scratch your heads and wonder why there is a sexodus. Hope this helps your understanding. All i know is that if Sweden is really being led by a hyperfeminist agenda, Russia, in all their backwardness, will run over them.

    even if no one really knows what that means. An interesting article byNathalie Rothschild (Foreign Policy); heres an excerpt, though you should read the whole piece:
    Margot Wallstrm, the newly minted foreign minister, has said that under her leadership Sweden will become the only country in the world to conduct a feminist foreign policy. Thats a perspective that flows from U.N. Security Council Resolution 1325, a landmark measure that recognized both the disproportionate impact war has on women and the role women must play in ensuring peace and security.By empowering women, the argument goes, there are better chances of snuffing out wars before they start and of ending them in more equitable ways. However, it is less clear what such a feminist foreign policy has to say about the old-school power politics that Putin has helped resuscitate in the past year.During a recent debate in the Swedish parliament, Wallstrm said that her feminist approach is based on the American political scientist Joseph Nyes concept of smart power. The tools of foreign policy can, in varying degrees, be hard as well as soft. The situation at hand determines this, Wallstrm said. The half of the population that so far has been almost systematically excluded and forgotten namely, women will now be included.Asked how she believes a feminist foreign policy will help end Russian aggression, Wallstrm suggested it would be useful to review womens participation in the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe and to look at what it does to address the problems women face a statement exactly as vague as it sounds

    Eugene Volokh teaches free speech law, religious freedom law, church-state relations law, a First Amendment Amicus Brief Clinic, and tort law, at UCLA School of Law, where he has also often taught copyright law, criminal law, and a seminar on firearms regulation policy.
