Grant Amount: $25,000, on 5/2/2012
Women, War & Peace, a five-part series exploring women’s strategic role in conflict and peacebuilding, aired in the fall of 2011 on PBS. The series is a co-production of Fork Films and THIRTEEN in association with WNET and ITVS. In five episodes, the series demonstrates that women have moved to the center of contemporary war zones, finding themselves increasingly targeted as civilians as well as risking their lives to call for peace and justice. To extend public engagement around the crucial issues showcased in the series, WNET and Fork Films have launched a comprehensive outreach and audience engagement campaign in communities across the country and around the world.
