Photo exhibit highlights women's roles in peacebuilding

Photo Exhibit 'Poppies: Women and War' UN Photo/Eskinder Debebe

Women's contributions to ending war and bringing about peace are being honoured in a photo exhibition which has just opened at UN Headquarters in New York City.

'Poppies: Women and War' features portraits of women and girls whose lives have been affected by conflict alongside images of the flower that serves as a reminder of those who died in battle.

Dianne Penn has the story.
