Women, War and Peace

September 22, 2011

Hour 2: Long the primary targets in post-Cold War conflicts, women are beginning to play important roles in the brokering of lasting peace and as leaders in post-conflict societies. We’ll explore those roles this hour with Abigail E. Disney, executive producer of the new 5-part PBS series, “Women, War & Peace [1].” The series premiers on Tuesday, October 11th and Disney will speak to the Embrey Human Rights Program at SMU [2] this evening [3].
