In a year when women are mobilizing and running for office in unprecedented numbers, Women, War & Peace returns Monday, March 25 and Tuesday, March 26, 8pm (7 MT) on SDPB1. The new series demonstrates how some of the biggest international stories of recent memory are shaped by women. An all-female cast of directors present four never-before-told stories about the women who risked their lives for peace, changing history in the process.

If today’s movements signal a future marked by gender equality, Women, War & Peace II looks to the past to see exactly—and how effectively—women can make that happen.

Seven years after the original debut of the mini-series, Women, War & Peace II premieres at a critical political moment where women are calling for a seat at the table. In uncovering untold histories of those who have made that possible, the series reveals their transformative power and the long road ahead for contemporary peacebuilders around the world.
