Women & War

22nd March 2024, 9:00 am - 7:00 pm

The conference discusses new understandings and perspectives about women at and in war, and explores the multiple, complex, and sometimes conflicting roles women played in armed conflict: as soldiers, war leaders, humanitarian workers, civilians, perpetrators, victims, and survivors.
