As the AANM prepares for the Veterans Day (Nov. 11) opening of the new exhibition Patriots & Peacemakers:  Arab Americans in Service to Our Country, PBS is preparing to present a bold, new five-part mini-series, Women, War & Peace to national audiences in October and November.

Dr. Nathima AtchooJoin us for a free screening of War Redefined, the final installment of the mini-series, at 6 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 20 at the AANM, followed by a panel discussion with Chaldean humanitarian Dr. Nathima Atchoo (left)and Iraqi American poet Dunya Mikhail (lower Dunya Mikhailright).

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 Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former Secretaries of State Condoleezza Rice and Madeleine Albright; Liberian peace activist Leymah Gbowee; Bosnian war crimes investigator Fadila Memisevic; Zainab Salbi, Founder of Women for Women International; globalization expert Moisés Naím; and Cynthia Enloe of Clark University, among others. Narrated by Geena Davis.
