Women War and Peace

Premiered Fall 2011

Women, War & Peace challenges the conventional wisdom that war and peace are men's domain. The five-part series reveals that women have become primary targets in today's armed conflicts and are 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.
