WATCH: Women, War & Peace On PBS


10/19/2011

Women, War & Peace is a bold, new PBS mini-series exploring women's role in conflict and peace-building. Airing every Tuesday evening from October 11 through November 8, Women, War & Peace tells the stories of women in conflict zones from Bosnia, Afghanistan, Colombia and Liberia, and is the first major broadcast campaign to show that women are not only suffering unprecedented casualties in today's wars - but are also emerging as leaders in peace-building and post-conflict resolution.

Produced by Abigail E. Disney, Pamela Hogan and Gini Reticker, and featuring narrators Matt Damon, Tilda Swinton, Geena Davis and Alfre Woodard, Women, War & Peace prompts us to ask: what if we looked at war as though women mattered?

This Tuesday, October 25, tune in for Peace Unveiled, the story of three women in Afghanistan risking their lives to make sure women's rights don't get traded away in peace negotiations with the Taliban.

On November 1st and 8th, you can catch the two final episodes: The War We Are Living, the story of two extraordinary Afro-Colombian women from Cauca, a mountainous region in Colombia's Pacific southwest, who are braving a violent struggle over their gold-rich lands and War Redefined, the capstone of Women, War & Peace, which through incisive interviews with leading thinkers, Secretaries of State and seasoned survivors of war and peace-making, challenges the conventional wisdom that war and peace are men's domain.
