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.

Women looking for bargains probably won’t find them at Customs. The burden of tariffs falls heavily—and in many cases exclusively—on the consumer.  So when the tariff on women’s leather shoes is higher than the tariff on men’s leather shoes (which it is), women feel the pain, says Dr. Lori Taylor, an associate professor at the Bush School of Government and Public Service at Texas A&M University.
