dc.descriptionIncludes descriptive metadata provided by producer in MP4 file: "The Non-Violence Struggle - Video - The Rev James Lawson The Non-Violence Struggle 11-13-2007 1 of 2." Video of a class session. Lawson presents part of the film Iron Jawed Angels, which deals with the women's suffrage movement in the U.S., and discusses the movement's strategies as an example of nonviolent social action. He discusses differences between groups within the movement, and draws lessons from the movement for social action in general. He focuses especially on Alice Paul, who led the National Woman's Party. He also discusses current U.S. political issues, including the Iraq War and the war economy, and the upcoming presidential election. Lawson fears that a president who moved seriously toward ending the Iraq War, thus disrupting the defense-based economy, would risk assassination.en
