Women as Foreign Policy Leaders

Chapter 4 focuses on Madeleine Albright’s contributions to the two Clinton administrations of the 1990s. As UN ambassador and the first woman secretary of state, she sought practical ways to solve problems in an era that saw the disappearance of the previous Cold War order, and she held key responsibility for the only armed interventions to that point in NATO’s history. Her support for military action in Bosnia and Kosovo was consistent with an assertive outlook that pre-dated her cabinet appointments. Unlike Kirkpatrick, Albright engaged in feminist networks both before and during her time in top office. Consistent with that background, Albright supported progressive equality claims that resonated with the support base of the Clinton administration.

Keywords:   Madeleine Albright, foreign policy, feminism, NATO, United States, United Nations, Bosnia, Kosovo
