The United States receives 65% because:
Even though the government is engaged in collabouration with women's civil society, it does not provide adequate financial support to women's organisations, the number of projects and conferences on the Women, Peace and Security agenda in existence is low, civil society space for rights-focused activists (i.e.: racial equality and women's reproductive health-focused activisim and advoacy) is incresingly limited, and mass-surveillance - in accordance with national security and anti-terrorisim efforts - restricts civil society freedoms (i.e.: freedom of the press, freedom of public association).
