Saturday Vids: Women, War and Peace
Starting on October 11th, PBS launched a fascinating 5-part mini-series entitled "Women, War and Peace." As they describe it: "Women, War & Peace challenges the conventional wisdom that war and peace are men's domain. The five-part series reveals that women have become primary targets in today's armed conflicts and are suffering unprecedented casualties; yet, they are simultaneously emerging as necessary partners in brokering lasting peace and as leaders in forging new international laws governing conflict."
Check out the trailer (embedded below). The full versions of the five episodes can be found here.
