Publisher Description

Each year since 1901, the Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded to a person who has made a difference in the world. Twelve women have been given this award, and each has her own fascinating story. Each had to struggle to be heard because she was a woman, and each one shares an incredible determination, commitment, and hope for the future. The most recent winner, Wangari Maathai of Kenya, has helped African women plant more than 30 million trees. How does planting trees promote peace? By improving the lives of communities. Aung San Suu Kyi of Burma has also fought to improve lives by trying to bring democracy to her country. Máiread Corrigan Maguire and Betty Williams worked to end violence in Northern Ireland, Jody Williams campaigns to ban landmines, and Mother Theresa was an example of compassion to millions. The courage of the women here will inspire.
