Women, War & Peace is a new five-part PBS television series challenging the conventional wisdom that war and peace are men’s domain. It spotlights the stories of women in conflict zones from Bosnia to Afghanistan, Colombia to Liberia, placing women at the center of an urgent dialogue about conflict and security. The capstone of the series, War Redefined includes incisive interviews with leading thinkers, Secretaries of State and seasoned survivors of war and peace-making. Their experiences reveal how the post-Cold War proliferation of small arms has changed the landscape of war, with women becoming primary targets and suffering unprecedented casualties. Simultaneously, they describe how women are emerging as necessary partners in brokering lasting peace. Narrated by Geena Davis.
