About this product
- DescriptionClick here to listen to the interview with Judith Stiehm and Nobel Prize-winner Wangari Maathai on the Mimi Geerges show. Since it was first awarded in 1901, only twelve women have won the Nobel Prize for Peace. Hailing from all over the world, including the United States, Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Africa, and Central America, some have held graduate degrees, while others are barely schooled. Some began their work when young, some well past middle age. One was titled and two were subsistence farmers. This book shows their varied lives in fascinating detail. Engaged and inspiring, these women clearly demonstrate that there is something each of us can do to advance a just, positive peace. Whether they began by insisting on garbage collection or simply by planting a tree, each understood that peace must be global in order to be sustained. All learned that peace is t always popular, but believed they must persevere. They shared a common vision and commitment undiminished by obstacles and opposition. All are truly champions for peace.
