Women, War & Peace
Special guests Geena Davis and Abigail Disney together with an expert panel shared their experiences and insights about the making of Women, War & Peace, a bold five-part PBS television series challenging the conventional wisdom that war and peace are men’s domain.
Post-Cold War proliferation of small arms has changed the landscape of war, with women becoming primary targets and suffering unprecedented casualties. Yet they are simultaneously emerging as necessary partners in brokering lasting peace and as leaders in forging new international laws governing conflict.
With depth and complexity, Women, War & Peace spotlights the stories of women in conflict zones from Bosnia to Afghanistan and Colombia to Liberia, placing women at the center of an urgent dialogue about conflict and security, and reframing our understanding of modern warfare.
