Synopsis

Discussion Women and War
17.04.2018, 7:00–8:30 PM
Mittlerer Saal VHS Urania,
Uraniastraße 1, 1010 Vienna

In what ways has the role of women in armed conflicts and war changed over time? Is the traditional gender-specific ascription of ideas such as security and protection to men and peace and stability to women still applicable in the 21st century? Are women better at maintaining peace or resolving conflict? How do education and society influence people’s understanding of their own role and abilities in dealing with violence? During the discussion “Women and War” a panel of female experts will attempt to answer these and other questions. Two films that are part of this year’s LET’S CEE programme will also be introduced. The discussion will be held in English.
