She's Making Media: Jody Williams—Activism from Landmines to Killer Robots
6:30 PM ET
Jody Williams, winner of the 1997 Nobel Peace Prize for her work to ban landmines and currently a key figure in the campaign to ban “killer robots,” is a passionate advocate of freedom, self-determination, and human rights who has been described as "gutsy, plainspoken, outspoken, even brash." Eve Ensler, who penned the forward to Williams's new memoir, My Name Is Jody Williams: A Vermont Girl's Winning Path to the Nobel Peace Prize, has said she is "many things ... But to me Jody Williams is, first and foremost, an activist." Williams—a founding member and current chair of the Nobel Women's Initiative, a group of six female Nobel peace laureates who use the prestige of their work to increase the power and visibility of women's groups working for justice and equality—believes the real meaning of peace goes beyond the absence of armed conflict and is defined not by national security but by human security.
