Women in War online seminars on Gender and Armed Conflict

Every month during the academic year, we organize online seminars (webinars) where scholars present their research on subjects related to gender issues in wars and conflict zones.  We discuss regional as well as ideological topics. Thus seminars have covered regions as different as the Great Lakes, The Caucasus, Afghanistan,  Bosnia, MENA, issues such as female combatants, anti-military resistance, gender and genocide, nationalism, and much more.

The speakers become part of our think-tank and the network extends.

Our first webinar of the year features AMBER MATHWIG of the University of North Carolina.
After 10 years in the US Navy, she has gone back to college to deconstruct her experience

The question will be: Does the fact that women are now, since 2015, allowed into combat (in the US army) signify a step towards achieving equality in military/society at large ?
This will be particularly interesting when compared what happens in groups which have admitted women in the front line since their inception, such as the FARC in Colombia and Rojava in Syrian Kurdistan
