Office of Global Women's Issues
September 2011 — Present
The Secretary’s Office of Global Women’s Issues is committed to advancing the rights of women and girls as a central focus of U.S. diplomatic, development and defense interests. The work of the office is organized based on four pillars: 1) Promoting the full engagement of women in the political and economic spheres; 2) Mitigating the impact of violence against women; 3) Addressing underlying socio-economic problems, including women’s access to health and education, food security, and global problems such as climate change; and 4) Ensuring that women are integrated as equal participants in reconciliation, post-conflict reconstruction and development in areas affected by conflict.
