Interview archives: Nobel Peace Prize winner Leymah Gbowee on Radio Times

    It was announced today that Liberian peace activist Leymah Gbowee is one of three women to receive the Nobel Peace Prize for 2011. Just two weeks ago, Gbowee talked with Radio Times host Marty Moss-Coane about her fight for peace in Liberia, her documentary and her new book.

    Also chosen for the prize are Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and Yemen’s pro-democracy campaigner Tawakul Karman. They’re the first women to win the prize since 2004.

    You can listen here to Gbowee’s Radio Times interview, in which she talks about the Liberian Mass Action for Peace and her role in getting Sirleaf elected.
