Three women win the Nobel Peace Prize

Just a quick post to celebrate the great news that the Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded to three women who have passionately campaigned for women's rights and representation.

These women know that peace and prosperity cannot be achieved in a society that excludes women from decision making and the infrastructure of a country.

In the face of violence, exclusion, exile and repression, these women have bravely fought for the right for women everywhere to be recognised as full citizens of the world.

They are the 13th, 14th and 15th women in the history of the Nobel Peace Prize to be awarded the prize in its long history.

Their names?

Ellen Johnson Sirleaf
Leymah Gbowee
Tawakul Karman
