We are celebrating the recent announcement that Yemeni women’s rights activist Tawakkul Karman, together with Liberia’s Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and Leymah Gbowee, has won the Nobel Peace Prize!
CGNews has highlighted Tawakkul Karman’s leadership in promoting human rights, women’s political participation and government reform through nonviolent protests through three articles focusing on her amazing work – and that of other women’s rights activists in the Arab Spring:

Over 140 news outlets highlighted these articles, including McClatchy Tribune News Service, USA Today and Sacramento Bee in the United States, Turkey’s Hurriyet Daily News and Yemen's Yemen Times, Al Hadath and Al Masdar.

Today, we celebrate that highlighting these courageous women’s positive work through the media – including CGNews – has led to such recognition from the international community and helped fuel their efforts to continue their work in peacebuilding and positive change.
