Need more women leaders: Nobels awarded
Need more women leaders
The three women who won the Nobel Prize this week are surely worthy of the honor and underscore the need for stronger participation by women in world affairs. I suggest that greater participation would be a change in the male dominated profile and might make a difference in increasing collaboration and reducing global conflict. We won’t know until we try.

Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, activist Leymah Gbowee of Liberia and rights activist Tawakkul Karman of Yemen share this year's Nobel Peace Prize, the Norwegian Nobel Committee announced Friday.
They were chosen "for their nonviolent struggle for the safety of women and for women's rights to full participation in peace-building work," the committee said in Oslo, Norway.
"We cannot achieve democracy and lasting peace in the world unless women obtain the same opportunities as men to influence developments at all levels of society."”
