Speaking Out: Women, War, and the Global Economy By Jan Haaken


What can the rest of the world do to help a war torn country? Every day in the headlines, on the home front, and around the world, we face the issue of how war affects people. Speaking Out leads this important discussion by asking the question: why war? Speaking Out addresses the effects of war on gender and reparation in a five-part, interactive curriculum that is adaptable for differing educational levels, from secondary school to college. Based on the documentary Diamonds, Guns, and Rice, Speaking Out bridges the local and the global, placing gripping personal stories in an international landscape and highlighting the creative capacities that survive war. The relevance of such lessons in today’s world proves invaluable as we ask the questions: who are the victims of war? What are the effects of war? How are these effects overcome?
