Women and War featuring Nimmi Gowrinathan

WOMEN AND WAR featuring Nimmi Gowrinathan
October 23, 2014, TCC 350 | 7-9 PM
RSVP: http://bit.ly/1sZr3Mt

Join us for this talk on women and war zones. While women are often framed as victims in war zones, they are often also political actors, occupying a variety of roles in violent spaces. Women are by and large disproportionately impacted by the fallout of war (displacement, militarization, and rape). These experiences shape women in marginalized communities in distinct ways. In Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Afghanistan and elsewhere, lived experiences with violence often shape the politics of women, forcing us to recognize that women can be both victims and agents in complex conflicts around the world.
