In 2014, the then Swedish foreign minister Margot Wallström launched the world's first feminist foreign policy, which was hailed by some as progressive and dismissed by others as provocative. She is now the subject of a behind-the-scenes documentary, "The Feminister". In an interview with FRANCE 24, she reflected on her time as foreign minister, including her criticism of Saudi Arabia.
