About the Film:
Between 1990 and 2017, 92% of peace negotiators were men. Women, Peace & Power follows the stories of female activists, politicians, and ordinary citizens in Afghanistan, Liberia, and Northern Ireland as they try to influence peace talks against all odds.
While some of these peacebuilders use sit-ins and mass rallies to push for change, others win elections to negotiate at the peace table. All face challenges to their authority and legitimacy as they attempt to steer their countries away from war.
Women, Peace & Power was created by Peace is Loud, a nonprofit organization that uses storytelling to advance social justice movement building, with a focus on women’s rights and gender justice. This short film features excerpts from the documentary series Women, War & Peace—to learn more visit www.pbs.org/wnet/women-war-and-peace.
This event is hosted by the Program on Negotiation at Harvard Law School, the Middle East Negotiation Initiative, and student organizations Women in Defense, Diplomacy, and Development, and Women in Power at the Harvard Kennedy School
