Women’s rights has been a hot issue around the work for quite some time and this year the Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to a group of women who have been leading the project in many areas. The Nobel Peace Prize was awarded this week to three women who have become world renowned for their devotion to fair and equal treatment of women; more importantly the Nobel Peace Prize has helped reward the women for the hard work they’ve put in in such an important area.
The women that were awarded the Nobel Peace Prize all originally began fighting for women’s rights in Libya when they stood up to soldiers that insisted on using rape as a weapon to control women. As the women built up more and more of a resistance through women around them they began to make headlines and eventually women slowly began to regain some of the rights they deserved; ever since then the fight for women’s rights in the area and all around the world has been their focus. Throughout the fight the women have always focused on the most basic and most essential rights and this is what helped earn them the Nobel Peace Prize.
The women have all said that it is great to be honored with such a prestigious award but they feel their work is not done. The fight for women’s rights is still very much underway and as such they do not plan to stop the fight anytime soon.
