“Women, War, and the Dream of Peace”

TED talk by Zainab Salbi

With many accounts of war, we primarily get frontline stories of soldiers and combat. In 2010, at TEDGlobal, Zainab Salbi focused on the crucial “backline” efforts of women seeking to sustain everyday life through periods of conflict. Salbi also emphasized the importance for women to claim their seats at the negotiating table post-conflict.
