During her tenure as Secretary of State, and later during her 2016 presidential election campaign, Hillary Clinton called for women's rights to be central to US foreign policy. In new research Nilay Saiya, Tasneem Zaihra and Joshua Fidler find that improving women's rights outside of the US actually helps to make the US safer; countries where women can be educators and also have economic rights are less likely to be the source of anti-American terrorism.
