From Library Journal:

Gbowee, a young and abused Liberian mother, realized that her countrywomen could do one of two things: continue to be the victims of violence in this wartorn country, or do the unthinkable-band together to work for peace. In 2003, Gbowee helped organize both Christian and Muslim women to stage nonviolent protests against Liberia's brutal regime-protests that helped lead to the 2003 overthrow of president Charles Taylor and led to her receiving one of three 2011 Nobel Peace Prizes.
