The White House added that “President Trump was the first global leader to sign bipartisan legislation of this kind, making the United States the first country in the world with a standalone, comprehensive law on Women, Peace, and Security”.

It said “the Trump Administration has demonstrated its commitment to empowering women across the globe in economic and security fields, including through the White House Women’s Global Development and Prosperity (W-GDP) Initiative, unveiled earlier this year. With today’s release of our Strategy on Women, Peace, and Security, the United States reaffirms its strong and unwavering commitment to advancing women’s equality, protecting the rights of women and girls, and promoting women’s economic empowerment”.
