Incisive interviews with leading thinkers, secretaries of state and seasoned survivors of war and peace-making challenge the conventional wisdom that war and peace are men’s domain. 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 casualties. 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 the understanding of modern warfare through probing conversations with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her female predecessors, Condoleezza Rice and Madeleine Albright; Nobel Peace Prize winner Leymah Gbowee; Bosnian war crimes investigator Fadila Memisevic; Zainab Salbi, founder of Women for Women International; globalization expert Moises Naim; and Cynthia Enloe of Clark University, among others. Geena Davis narrates.
