Valerie Hudson, a professor at the Bush School of Government & Public Service, co-authored “The Hillary Doctrine: Sex and American Foreign Policy” which argues that far from being a “soft” foreign policy issue, the subjugation of women worldwide poses a threat to global prospects for peace and is therefore a direct threat to U.S. national security.
