Among the women celebrated in this book are Baroness Bertha von Suttner, one of the first activists in the modern peace movement, Betty Williams and Mairead Corrigan, who worked in the 1970s to bring peace to Northern Ireland, and Mother Teresa, who was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979. The most recent winner was Wangari Maathai, who won in 2004 for her struggle for democracy, human rights and environmental conservation in Africa. All the women included are inspiring heroines for peace.
