Women, War, and Peace Featuring Abigail Disney

Description

Award-winning documentarian and Stanford alumna Abigail Disney will talk about her latest project, PBS mini-series Women, War & Peace — the most comprehensive global media initiative ever mounted on the roles of women in peace and conflict. Ms. Disney will discuss the creation of Women, War & Peace and why she is committed to raising awareness about what she calls the ignored "second front of war" — women's experiences in both armed conflict and peace building efforts. Watch the premiere episode of Women, War & Peace, "I Came to Testify," at 11pm on October 11th, 2011 on KQED.

The event is free and open to all, but tickets are required. To get tickets, click here. The Knight Management Center includes an underground parking facility. After 4:00pm parking here is free.
