Women, War & Peace

Women, War & Peace is an extremely powerful five-part special series, which we showed an excerpt from during our info session in May. It was produced by THIRTEEN and Fork Films, funded by a multitude of international supporters, and aired on PBS in October and November of 2011. The series covers stories of women caught up in war and fighting for peace all over the globe. All five episodes are worth watching (and the official website supplies more great material and follow-ups) but we especially recommend these three episodes:

Pray the Devil Back to Hell 
~ a documentary about Leymah Gbowee and the women of Liberia and how they altered the history of nations

The War We Are Living
~ a documentary about 2 Afro-Caribbean women in Colombia fighting to keep their mining community afloat after civil war

Watch The War We Are Living on PBS. See more from Women War and Peace.

War Redefined
~ a documentary about the positions and predicaments of women and children in today’s war zones

Watch War Redefined on PBS. See more from Women War and Peace.
