In a year when women are mobilizing and running for office in unprecedented numbers, Women, War & Peace II uncovers the untold histories of those who have made it possible. The series reveals the transformative power of contemporary peacebuilders around the world and the long road ahead. The series returns Monday, March 25 and Tuesday, March 26, 9-11 p.m. on PBS (check local listings). The new series demonstrates how some of the biggest international stories of recent memory are shaped by women.
On March 12, an all-female cast of directors will speak about four never-before-told stories about the women who risked their lives for peace, changing history in the process.
Women, War & Peace II is executive produced by Abigail Disney and Gini Reticker for Fork Films and Stephen Segaller for THIRTEEN Productions LLC for WNET. The original groundbreaking documentary series Women, War & Peace premiered on PBS in 2011.
This launch event is co-hosted by the Women, Peace and Security Program at the Advanced Consortium on Cooperation, Conflict & Complexity (AC4), the Earth Institute, Columbia University; Fork Films; THIRTEEN Productions LLC for WNET; and Peace is Loud.
