Wednesday, May 9, 2018 - 12:00am

Since the late 1970s, the issue of women’s human rights in Islamic societies has become increasingly important to US foreign policy. By reframing US-Islamic relations with respect to women’s rights, Kelly Shannon challenges traditional interpretations of US foreign policy that assert the primacy of “hard power” concerns.
