Tawakul Karman , a journalist from Yemen has won the Nobel Peace Prize
“for their non-violent struggle for the safety of women and for women’s rights to full participation in peace-building work”
Karman has created the human rights group Women Journalists Without Chains (WJWC) in 2005 for promoting human rights.Ms. Karman, who belongs to the main opposition party, Al-Islah, has also spoken out against the rise of religious fundamentalism and violence in her country.
Regardless of the controversy of her act of taking of her “Niqab” and asking women in her country to do so, I`m so proud of her and I ask all the suppressed women in our society to follow her steps to prove themselves and speak out for their rights!
