A champion of women's empowerment around the world, Leymah Gbowee is an African peace activist often credited with aiding the cessation of the Second Liberian Civil War in 2003 through her extraordinary women-led peace movement. Currently the Executive Director of the Women Peace and Security Network Africa, Gbowee's work was the subject of the 2008 award-winning documentary Pray the Devil Back to Hell, which has been used as a tool to mobilize African women to petition for peace and security. In October 2007, the Women's Leadership Board at Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government honored Ms. Gbowee with the Blue Ribbon Peace Award for her significant contribution to peace-building. Two days after this talk was recorded, Gbowee became the co-recipient of the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize. (#23061)
