Writing at the intersection of motherhood, feminism and my Latinidad

Women, War and Peace

This year's Nobel Peace Prize was award to the three women above for their non-violent revolutionary ways. I could not contain my glee on Friday when I heard the news. I was clicking all over the internet for stories on them. The piece at Democracy Now! shouldn't be missed.

Tonight PBS starts a five-part series, Women, War and Peace, that will explore the issues these women deal with on a daily basis. I think only Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and Leymah Gbowee are actually featured in the series, but the issues faced by women in the Arab world will be featured.

The series airs weekly, so set the DVR so you don't miss it!

And congrats again to these fabulous women!
