Nobel's Women for PeaceBook - 2008
This title is suitable for children of ages 9 to 13 years. "The Women's Hall of Fame Series" outlines the courage of 12 women who have campaigned for peace. The list begins with Baroness Bertha von Suttner, one of the first peace activists of the 20th century. Probably the best known is Mother Teresa who was awarded the peace prize in 1979. Most recent is Wangari Maathai in 2004 for her struggle in the fight for democracy, human rights and environmental conservation in Africa. They are all inspiring heroines for peace.
