“Women Daring Peace” is a powerful new film showing NVC at work in Palestinian and Jewish families. 

In this film, you will get to know Anat and Nadia, two women who became friends through Nonviolent Communication. Together, they have decided to help take a step towards peace by organizing meetings between Jews and Arabs so that each can learn to listen to the other.

Through empathetic listening and awareness of their feelings and needs, Palestinians and Jews are connecting and seeing each other in a whole new way. 

This film offers a view on the situation in Israel from an angle that is not shown in western media. You will see firsthand how NVC can be a way to resolve conflict, even in groups where the parties were involved in war actions.
