This document is about an article from the newspaper "Time", talking about three liberian women who received the 2011 Peace Nobel Price.

The first woman noticed is of course the new president of Liberia, which is also the Africa's first female president, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf. From the top of her 73 years old, she has spent the past five years working to bring democratic peace and stability to Liberia and increase the quality level of relationships in the global community to put Liberian women's issues in the front of her politic.

The second woman is Leymah Gbowee, a liberian peace activist, famous for her work as a counselor from 1989 to 1996, and mostly for the organisation of a women sex strike that forced the opening of a conflict-ending talk with the precedent dictator Charles Taylor.

Tawakul Karman is the third person that received the famous Nobel Price, for the yemen's protesting activities from the beginning of this year which she was one natural leader. She worked a lot for the liberty of her activists, as her role as head of Yemen's human-rights organization Women Journalists Without Chains.
