U.S. Women Peace and Security Congressional Report 2022


"The world is more peaceful, safe, and prosperous when the human rights of women are respected and they can fully participate in economic, social, and political life." - U.S. President Joe Biden
The Women, Peace, and Security Act of 2017 (P.L. 115-68) (WPS Act) codified the United States Government’s (USG) longstanding, sustained commitment to the principles of the Women, Peace, and Security Agenda.

This is the second iteration of the WPS Congressional Report and includes input from each of the four departments and agencies involved in the Strategy: Department of Defense (DoD), Homeland Security (DHS), the Department of State (DoS), and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).

It evaluates the USG’s progress in advancing the U.S. Women, Peace, and Security Strategy (WPS Strategy) launched in 2019, and the agency-specific Implementation Plans to measure and report on progress related to the WPS Strategy’s four Lines of Effort (LOEs): 1) Participation; 2) Protection; 3) Internal Capabilities; and 4) Partnerships.
