It is with pure, unrelenting joy that we celebrate
that President Ellen Johnson, Leymah Gbowee , and Tawakkul Karman have won the
Nobel Peace Prize for “their non-violent struggle for the safety of women and
for women’s rights to full participation in peace-building work” in Liberia
Two of these women – Leymah Gbowee and Ellen Johnson Sirleaf – are long-time
Women Waging Peace Network members.
This is a wake-up call to the policy community that
they can no longer ignore women leaders, who are the most valuable untapped
resources for global stability, as this award announces to the world that YES,
women play a vital role in preventing violence, ending war, and rebuilding
their societies after conflict and YES, their efforts deserve recognition.
The Aman-o-Nisa (Pakistan Women’s Coalition Against Extremism)
is committed to the cause of peace in Pakistan
with the belief that women play a major role in preventing conflict, moderating
extremism, and rebuilding conflict-affected communities. Let’s convey our
heartiest congratulations to the winners on this auspicious day as Pakistani people
stand united with peace-builders around the world on December 10 to
celebrate the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize and women’s participation in building a
secure world. This moment of celebration is not only
for the awardees, but for all men and women who struggle to make the world more
secure – and refuse to take no as their answer.
Thank you for making us
realize that we can make a difference.
ENTRY IS OPEN TO ALL
