ALLIES Weekly Discussion: Women in Armed Conflict

Date & Time November 6, 2019 8:00pm - 9:00pm
Eaton 206

Sexual violence has been used as a weapon in war, especially against women, for centuries. Though conflicts can destroy women’s lives, women have historically not been included in post-conflict discussions. Why has this been the case, and what institutions must be changed to make peace processes more gender-inclusive, particularly for women? Join ALLIES and Women in IR this Wednesday as we discuss these questions and explore how sexual violence has been weaponized throughout history.
