As a young woman, Leymah Gbowee was broken by the Liberian civil war. Years of fighting destroyed her country and shattered Gbowee's girlhood hopes and dreams. As a young mother trapped in a nightmare of domestic abuse, she found the courage to turn her bitterness into action, propelled by her realization that it is women who suffer most during conflicts and that the power of women working together can create an unstoppable force. In 2003, the passionate and charismatic Gbowee helped organize and then led the Liberian Mass Action for Peace, a coalition of Christian and Muslim women who sat in public protest, confronting Liberia's ruthless president and rebel warlords, and even held a sex strike. With an army of women, Gbowee helped lead her nation to peace in the process emerging as an international leader who changed history. In 2011 she won the Nobel Prize for peace, together with Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and Tawakkul Karman

Mighty be our powers [how sisterhood, prayer, and sex changed a nation at war : a memoir] by Leymah Gbowee( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As a young woman growing up in Africa, Leymah Gbowee was broken by a savage civil that war destroyed life as she knew it, depriving her of the education she yearned for and claiming the lives of relatives and friends. As war continued to ravage Liberia, Gbowee's bitterness turned to rage-fueled action as she realized it is women who are the silent sufferers in prolonged conflicts. Passionate and charismatic, Gbowee was instrumental in galvanizing women across Liberia in 2003 to force a peace in the region after 14 years of war. She began organizing Christian and Muslim women to demonstrate together, founding the Liberian Mass Action for Peace, launching protests and even a sex strike. Gbowee's memoir chronicles the unthinkable violence she's faced throughout her life, the peace she has helped to broker by empowering her countrywomen and others around the world to take action, and takes readers along on her continuing journey as she harnesses the power of women to bring her country peace, saves herself, and changes history
