Plot Synopsis

Filmed in conflict zones in Afghanistan, Bosnia, Colombia, and Liberia, this series focuses on the under-reported stories of the women who are changing the rules of engagement in conflict hotspots all over the world, reframing our understanding of modern warfare. Among the women spotlighted are: Afghan women's rights activists who are risking their lives to make sure that women have a seat at the table in peace talks with the Taliban; the courageous Bosnian women who broke history's great silence and testified about their rape and sexual enslavement, leading to a historic court victory; two extraordinary Colombian women who are braving death threats to remain on the gold-rich land that has sustained their community for centuries; and a group of Liberian women, led by activist Leymah Gbowee, who faced down the killers and brought peace to their country.
