The Obama administration institutionalized its gender agenda through four foreign policy initiatives—three global strategies on gender-based violence and adolescent girls, and one on women, peace and security which we report on this week.
Cloaked in the language of women’s rights and non-discrimination, they have effectively transformed the Department of State and the U.S. Military into homosexual advocacy organizations, mandating that our troops and foreign service officers promote sexual rights in countries around the world, even where they are most unwelcome. Most egregiously, the plans hurt women and girls in aid-dependent countries by diverting funding and political capital away from what they really need, such as schools, health clinics, and microfinance opportunities to open small businesses.
