DCU is delighted to host a lecture by Nobel Laureate Leymah Gbowee, the Liberian peace activist and women’s rights advocate. The Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to her 2011 in recognition of the “non-violent struggle for the safety of women and for women’s rights to full participation in peace-building work”.
She led the Women of Liberia Mass Action for Peace, which brought Christian and Muslim women together in a non-violent movement that played a critical role in ending the civil war in Liberia in 2003. Ms Gbowee is an advocate for human rights, peace and security.
The lecture is taking place on Monday 13 April at 11am in the Helix. The title is “Living Peace, Leaving Peace”.
