CBC Radio Program on Women and Peace

Hi everyone,

On Tuesday, April 28, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation will air “Peace in Their Times” on Marilyn Powell’s award-winning program, IDEAS. The guests in this documentary presentation include myself and three other historians—Mineka Bosch, Adam Hochschild, and David S. Patterson. The topic: The 1915 International Congress of Women at The Hague which launched the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom. Check the CBC listings for air times in your local area. At the same time, thousands of women will be meeting at The Hague in celebration of WILPF’s 100th anniversary and to discuss the present and future of women’s peace activism.
