This post is not dedicated to only one woman but three and what they have achieved.
Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Leymah Gbowee, and Tawakkol Karman are the three exceptional women that have received the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize for their tireless pursuit for peace, democracy, and women’s rights in their respective countries. Sharing the Nobel Peace Prize among three women is a first but it sends a clear message to the international community about the importance of women and the integral role they play in establishing peace.
As a young woman, I share the joy of these women’s great accomplishment, their passion, and their simple conviction to pursue justice. These are everyday women. These women are world-changers.
