Leymah Gbowee is a famous women’s rights, peace activist and philanthropist, notable for her involvement in the Women of Liberia Mass Action for Peace, a women’s peace movement that was significant in bringing an end to the Second Liberian Civil war. Leymah’s efforts in ending the civil war contributed greatly in ushering a new period of peace and democracy to the war-torn nation, and enabled a free election that resulted in her friend and collaborator, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, to become Liberia’s first woman president, making the country the first African nation to have a woman president.
