The Nobel Women's Initiative believes change is possible because individually and collectively they have had the privilege of participating in and witnessing extraordinary human efforts to transform our world. They know that the seemingly impossible is very possible when women work together to make it so. The Nobel Women’s Initiative uses the prestige of the Nobel Peace Prize and six courageous women peace laureates—Mairead Maguire, Rigoberta Menchú Tum, Jody Williams, Shirin Ebadi, Tawakkol Karman, and Leymah Gbowee—to magnify the power and visibility of women working in countries around the world for peace, justice and equality. The six women bring together their extraordinary experiences and work to spotlight, amplify and promote the work of grassroots women’s organizations and movements around the world. The Nobel Women’s Initiative was established in 2006.
