Women are the ones that bear the greatest burden. We are also the ones who nurture societies.
Gbowee quotes
If any changes were to be made in society it had to be by the mothers.
Gbowee
Regardless of whom you pray to, during war our experiences as a community and as mothers are the same.




Gbowee Leymah quotes
We are all responsible. We are all complicit. White T-shirts catch the light. What matters is what we then do with that light. (The peace activists wore white t-shirts during their protests.)
