About us

The Nobel Women's Initiative is a not for profit international advocacy organization established in 2006 to bring together the extraordinary experiences of six women Nobel Peace Prize recipients: Jody Williams, USA; Shirin Ebadi, Iran; Wangari Maathai, Kenya; Betty Williams, Ireland; Mairead Corrigan Maguire, Ireland; and Rigoberta Menchu, Guatemala. Faced with an increasingly unstable world, marked by persistent violations to women's rights, the women Laureates decided to unite for peace, with justice and equality.

The mission of the Nobel Women's Initiative is to work together as women Nobel Peace Prize Laureates to use the visibility and prestige of the Nobel prize to promote, spotlight, and amplify the work of women's rights activists, researchers, and organizations worldwide addressing the root causes of violence, in a way that strengthens and expands the global movement to advance nonviolence, peace, justice and equality. We accomplish this mission through three main strategies: connecting and convening key decision makers with women's rights activists; shaping and defining the conversation around peace, conflict and violence; and spotlighting and promoting the efforts of activists, researchers and organizations working to advance peace.

The Nobel Women's Initiative is based in Ottawa, Ontario.
