(p.205) Chapter 7 Conclusion
Women as Foreign Policy Leaders

Sylvia Bashevkin

Oxford University Press

Chapter 7 addresses the ways in which women leaders have made a difference in international relations. It considers the main findings from previous chapters in light of themes from feminist diplomatic history, including the changing status of diplomatic as contrasted with military institutions in the United States. The discussion considers what personal traits assisted each leader and compares how Kirkpatrick, Albright, Rice, and Clinton dealt with matters of national security and feminism. It returns to concepts of political representation in order to juxtapose leaders’ track records with the predilections of Americans generally. The chapter speculates as to what can be expected on the terrain of international affairs from an American woman who becomes US president—whether she is already operating in the public limelight or is someone as yet unknown.
