An assessment of British female ambassadors in overcoming gender hierarchy, 1990-2010

As a traditionally male domain, existing power structures within the diplomatic infrastructure remain to reinforce gender inequalities and overt discriminatory practices, making it difficult for women to enter diplomacy at the highest position. Using the United Kingdom as a case study, Talyn Rahman-Figueroa—diplomatic consultant and CEO of Grassroot Diplomat, critically examines gender hierarchy as a key problem to the advancement of women in diplomacy, and explores a variety of practical solutions to breaking centuries of patriarchal tradition.
