Abstract: 

In this Policy Options Paper, Dr Cassandra Steer, Dr Elise Stephenson and Sarah Furman discuss the gendered implications of increasing attacks on space systems and why Australia’s global reputation for gender-responsive approaches in arms control and other diplomatic efforts makes it best positioned to play a leading role on Women Peace and Security in space. They call on Australia’s Defence Space Command, the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and the Australian Space Agency to adopt key recommendations including targets for diverse gender representation within space careers.
