Biography

Abigail Disney is also known for her film and documentary work and as a strong defender of bringing women to the forefront regarding national and supranational issues. Being an adamant supporter of peace, has led her to take strong stances, including towards her great-uncle, Walt Disney, when she felt his actions had been insufficiently race-sensitive.

How to powerfully counter war

The most powerful and lasting way to counter war and violence is to build a culture of peace. Peace is more than the absence of war. Peace means living together with, and even celebrating, our differences—be they cultural, religious, ethnic, racial or gender-based. Peace involves transforming society from the inside out, in our own lives and across borders.
