"Women, War and Peace" on PBS Starting October 11
"Women, War & Peace" is a new five-part PBS Television Series starting Oct. 11, that challenges the conventional wisdom that war and peace are men's domain. Featuring narrators Matt Damon, Tilda Swinton, Geena Davis and Alfre Woodard, "Women, War & Peace" is the most comprehensive global media initiative ever mounted on the roles of women in war and peace. With depth and complexity, the series 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.
