Women, Media, Revolution
Date and Time
Wednesday, October 5, 2011 – Friday, October 7, 2011
Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace & Justice
“Women, Media, Revolution” is a free public forum to encounter frontline journalists, filmmakers and social media citizen activists engaged in the critical examination of women in conflict and how they are using their voices in a revolution against ongoing political and cultural violence.
Coverage of women during conflict often focuses solely on violations of women’s rights to physical security and psychological well-being. It must also unmask the cultural traditions that deny women’s human rights and involvement in decision-making that could change the course of violence in their communities.
