Women, War & Peace II, Ep. 3: A Journey of a Thousand Miles: Peacekeepers

Embark on a risky year-long UN peacekeeping mission into earthquake-ravaged Haiti with an all-female Bangladeshi police unit. Leaving their families behind, these police officers shatter stereotypes as they rise in the name of building peace.



Series Description

As twenty-first-century women proudly declare in streets and political offices that the future is female, a PBS mini-series showcases documentaries revealing that history, in fact, is too.

With insight and intimacy, Women, War & Peace II demonstrates how some of the biggest international stories of recent memory are shaped by women. An all-female cast of directors present four never-before-told stories about the women who risked their lives for peace, changing history in the process. In uncovering untold histories of those who made that possible, the series reveals their transformative power and the long road ahead for contemporary peacebuilders around the world.

If today’s movements signal a future marked by gender equality, Women, War & Peace II looks to the past to see exactly—and how effectively—women can make that happen.
