Episode Title: 
The War We Are Living

Filmed in conflict zones in Afghanistan, Bosnia, Colombia and Liberia, the five-hour series WOMEN, WAR & PEACE examines the changing roles of women in war and peace. WOMEN, WAR & PEACE airs Tuesdays at 9:00 pm through November 8 on WCTE.
Part 4: The War We Are Living: In a mountainous region in Colombia’s Pacific southwest, two extraordinary Afro-Colombian women are fighting to hold onto the gold-rich land that has sustained their community through small-scale mining for centuries. Clemencia Carabali and Francia Marquez are part of a powerful network of female leaders, who discovered during Colombia’s 40-year civil war that women can organize more freely than men. As they defy paramilitary death threats and steadfastly remain on their land, Carabali and Marquez are standing up for a generation of Colombians who have been terrorized and forcibly displaced as a deliberate strategy of war. Alfre Woodard narrates.
