Nobel Peace Laureates. The impact of their work has but just begun
HollywoodNews.com: The Nobel Women’s Initiative would like to sincerely thank you for your support over the past year — and thank you for the work you’ve done for peace and gender equality in your corner of the world. We pledge to continue to work alongside you to build on the momentum of some of the extraordinary events of this past year. And we continue to be deeply inspired by the incredibly brave and committed women activists that we meet all over the world. It is you who inspire and motivate us to work even harder for peace, justice and equality.
As we reflect on the year that has passed we have been moved by an ending, and a beginning. The death of Wangari Maathai was very difficult. But as we remember her extraordinary work and her perseverance until the end, our resolve to bring change strengthens yet again. And we see an inspirational beginning in welcoming three new strong and courageous women .
This holiday season, we hope to share with you some inspiration: a beautiful tribute video about the life and work of Wangari Maathai, and the wise and moving words of new Nobel Peace Laureates Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Leymah Gbowee, and Tawakkul Karman.
