Guest: Gayle Tzemach Lemmon 

During this Foreign Policy Forum, Gayle Tzemach Lemmon discussed The Daughters of Kobani, which tells the story of an unlikely fight in northeastern Syria in 2014, when an all-female militia faced off against ISIS. In general, women’s contributions to matters of war and peace, foreign policy, national security, and even combat on battlefields have often been overlooked. This is true of the conflict in Syria as well. Throughout the conversation and the question and answer session, Lemmon answered questions regarding the war in Syria, women in peacemaking, and more. Gayle Tzemach Lemmon is an Adjunct Senior Fellow for Women and Foreign Policy at the Council on Foreign Relations. She is also a New York Times best selling author.
