Leymah Gbowee is a Liberian peace and women's rights activist who played a pivotal role in peace-building and promoting women's leadership in peace processes in her war-ravaged country. She led the peace movement, Women of Liberia Mass Action for Peace that brought an end to the Second Liberian Civil War in 2003 and paved the way for peace to prevail in the hitherto politically unstable nation of Liberia. Along with fellow women's rights activist, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, she worked relentlessly towards the betterment of the Liberian women-folk who had borne the greatest burden in the war ravaged nation. She had freshly graduated from high school and had ambitious plans for her future when the he First Liberian Civil War erupted in 1989 and turned her life upside down. After a few years she learned about a program run by UNICEF for training people to be social workers who would then counsel those traumatized by war. She immediately joined the program and became aware of the rampant abuse women faced and the challenges and difficulties that lay ahead of them. Eventually she became a prominent spokesperson for women's rights and led the women's peace movement that ultimately put an end to the Second Liberian Civil War. She along with her collaborators, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and Tawakkul Karman, were awarded the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize for their significant peace works.
Early in her adulthood, she escaped domestic abuse and fled to Ghana with her new romantic partner and her children.
She earned a degree in social work from the Mother Patern College of Health Sciences and subsequently counseled former child soldiers.
Liberian women under her leadership participated in numerous peaceful protests, including a highly publicized sex strike.
