Hillary Clinton has argued that the subjugation of women is a threat to national security and that empowering women can be a major force in attaining both domestic and international peace. Hudson examines this doctrine in her book, and at the event will explore the doctrines’ affect on US policy and relations with other countries. She draws attention to the difficulty and intricacies of bettering women’s lives while looking out for the good of the entire nation.

She is one of the co-authors of the book, “The Hillary Doctrine: Sex and American Foreign Policy” along with Patricia Liedl and Swanee Hunt.
