Women, War & Peace: War Redefined

  • Date: Thursday, May 16
  • Time: 12:00 noon CT
  • Location: ACB 240

The capstone of Women, War & Peace: War Redefined challenges the conventional wisdom that war and peace are men’s domain through incisive interviews with leading thinkers, Secretaries of State, and seasoned survivors of war and peace-making. Their experiences reveal how the post-Cold War proliferation of small arms has changed the landscape of war, with women becoming primary targets and suffering unprecedented casualty rates. Simultaneously, they describe how women are emerging as necessary partners in brokering lasting peace and as leaders in forging new international laws governing conflict.

War Redefined reframes our understanding of modern warfare through probing conversations with former Secretaries of State Hillary Clinton, Condoleezza Rice, and Madeleine Albright and Liberian peace activist Leymah Gbowee, among others.

This film will be screened at the Lubbock campus only, but is available for checkout by faculty, staff, and students at the other TTUHSC campuses.

Attendees are welcome to bring their own lunch. Free snacks will be provided!
