FOH celebrates the three women Nobel Peace Prize winners

When Graziella Zanoletti started Friends of Humanity in 2007, one of her main reasons for doing so was her belief that women have a moral duty to involve themselves more in society, in order to use their unique skills and energy to solve problems. The increasing role of women in society is one of the keys in our activities and that is why we welcome the news of the Nobel Peace Prize 2011, awarded to three women, as proof of the new positions acquired by women.

The Liberian President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf (top left), first woman to lead an African country, her countrywoman Leymah Gbowee (top Right), lawyer specializing in human rights, and the Yemenite journalist Tawakkul Karman (bottom right), one of the leaders in the recent protests in Yemen, together represent the new importance women have acquired in countries where male rule has brought mainly war, violence and injustice.

We congratulate the three winners for their achievements and hope their work will inspire many other women and men.
