Today it was annouced that the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize will be awarded jointly to President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Leymah Gbowee and Tawakkul Karman “for their non-violent struggle for the safety of women and for women’s rights to full participation in peace-building work.”

Only 12 women in the past had won the Nobel prize in its 110 year history!  That’s about one every 10 years…This year’s annoucement is a start but I’m looking to see a woman on the flip side of that coin soon!   I am so proud of our sisters for working hard on behalf of women worldwide.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart. 

Earlier this year I wrote on this blog about President Johnson Sirleaf and her excellent record as Liberia’s Head of State.  Here is a repost:
