Exploring Women's Leadership in Times of War

Tuesday, November 28, 2006 • 3:30 PM

GEB 3.312

In times of war, women often find themselves acting as leaders in new and unexpected ways: within th military, within the peace movement, in the homes and towns that are under siege, and in filling the roles in the economy, family, and the community that were vacated by the men who joined th fight. These roles may be emotionally, morally, and physically challenging. This panel will explore a variety of views on women and war by those who have been close to it.
