Leymah Gbowee: Unlock the intelligence, passion, greatness of girls

I learned about Room to Read via my friend Nikki, who is a long-time supporter. They recently shared this video which I found inspiring, on Twitter.

Nobel Peace Prize winner Leymah Gbowee has two powerful stories to tell -- of her own life's transformation, and of the untapped potential of girls around the world. Can we transform the world by unlocking the greatness of girls?

Leymah Gbowee is a peace activist in Liberia. She led a women's movement that was pivotal in ending the Second Liberian Civil War in 2003, and now speaks on behalf of women and girls around the world.
