Leymah Gbowee is an extraordinary woman. The Liberian peace activist is responsible for leading a women’s peace movement, Women of Liberia Mass Action for Peace, which helped bring an end to the Second Liberian Civil War.
Today she’s a Nobel Peace Prize winner, but once she was just a young girl, like thousands of others, trapped in a patriarchal system that prevented her from having a better life.
Leymah Gbowee has two powerful stories to tell–of her own life’s transformation, and of the untapped potential of girls around the world. Today she runs a foundation to help girls receive an education and fulfill their dreams of a good life.
She asks: Can we transform the planet by unlocking the greatness of girls?
