The Nobel Women’s Initiative was established in 2006 by sister Nobel Peace Prize laureates Jody Williams, Shirin Ebadi, Rigoberta Menchú Tum, Wangari Maathai, Betty Williams and Mairead Maguire. These six women, representing North and South America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, were joined by Leymah Gbowee and Tawakkol Karman in 2012. The Nobel Women’s Initiative uses the prestige of the Nobel Peace Prize and of courageous women peace laureates to magnify the power and visibility of women working in countries around the world for peace, justice, and equality.  The Nobel Women’s Initiative believes peace is more than the absence of armed conflict. Peace is the commitment to equality and justice; a democratic world free of physical, economic, cultural, political, religious, sexual and environmental violence and the constant threat of these forms of violence against women and all of humanity.  To find out more about the Nobel Women’s Initiative, please visit their website, Facebook page, You Tube channel and follow them on Twitter.
