About the Program

On January of this year, Mexico became the first global south country—and only the third country worldwide—to launch an explicitly feminist foreign policy. Foreign Minister, Marcelo Ebrard, formalized the commitment made during the General Assembly of the United Nations. Mexico’s feminist foreign policy is based on a set of principles that seek to promote government actions to reduce and eliminate structural differences, gender gaps and inequalities, in order to build a more just and prosperous society. This means that all services and programs of the consular network will work based on a gender perspective. In addition to developments in the U.S.-Mexico relationship, we will also discuss ways the Consulate has adapted through quarantine and the pandemic.
