And the winners are:  Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Liberian activist Leymah Gbowee and Yemeni rights campaigner Tawakkul Karman (pictured).

All of them have been recognized by the Norwegian Nobel Committee for their “non-violent struggle for the safety of women and for women’s rights to full participation in peace-building work.”

Congratulations to Ellen, Leymah and Tawakkul.  We are very proud of you and thank you for the important work you do on behalf of women throughout our world.
