Feminism and Soft Power

"Soft Power," coined by Joseph Nye in the 1980s, refers to the ability of a country to persuade others to do what it wants without force or coercion. In this section, we curate pieces that engage with soft power through a feminist lens. This curated collection looks at the broad themes of feminist foreign policy, WPS, and transitional justice in soft power through the lens of intersectional feminism.
