Women, War & Peace
ABOUT WOMEN, WAR & PEACE
Women, War & Peace is a five-part documentary film series that challenges the conventional wisdom about war. It proposes a basic question: What if we looked at war through women’s eyes? What if we looked beyond familiar images of male soldiers and ammunition and saw women—emerging as witnesses, courageous survivors, peace activists, political negotiators, advocates for justice, and heads of state? In five films, Women, War & Peace takes us to Bosnia, Liberia, Afghanistan and Colombia to report the stories of women in hotspots all over the world. By placing women at the center of a discourse about global security, the series offers a critically important perspective on war today. Visit womenwarandpeace.org to learn more.

Viewers in North America, where the series premiered on public television, can watch the complete series online at womenwarandpeace.org. They can also visit the PBS online store to purchase the films for home use or for educational use / public screenings.
To bring the films to a global audience, the filmmakers have created a special Women, War & Peace screening kit.
