Feminist.com's FemSalon Series

Spring 2013: Women & Peace: Transforming Conflict

In partnership with Peace is Loud and featuring a conversation with filmmaker Abigail Disney and women peacemakers -- including Nobel Laureate Jody Williams, WILPF Secretary General Madeleine Rees, AWID Executive Director, Lydia Alpízar Durán, World YWCA General Secretary Nyaradzayi Gumbonzvanda and the Honorable Shinkai Karokhail, this salon asked us to think differently about the way we approach conflict, and women’s roles as agents of change. Hosted at the home of Abigail Disney, we were moved, inspired and challenged to continue to work for positive change in our increasingly complex world.

Like our previous two salons on the State of Feminism and Women & Money: Re-imagining Economics, the room was filled with incredible people, including members of the Feminist.com board and advisory board, along with many longtime friends, supporters and colleagues.

Find out who joined us for the Women & Peace Salon and learn more about the incredible work they do.
