Nobel Peace Laureate Talks Transforming Conflict through Nonviolent Coalitions

Leymah Gbowee, winner of the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize, and others were credited with ushering in a period of peace and freedom in war-torn Liberia, which led to the election of Ellen Johnson Sirleaf in 2005, the first female president of an African nation.

In an inspiring new program from the Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace and Justice at the University of San Diego, Gbowee recounts her role in launching the women’s peace movement that helped bring an end to Liberia’s civil war in 2003.
