The development community has recently called on Congress and the U.S. President to reform U.S. foreign assistance for the 21st century. ICRW and Women Thrive Worldwide endorse the community’s call for a new and expanded U.S. strategy for global development and poverty reduction, and the authors of this brief assert that the reform agenda will be even more effective if it takes women into account.
