 Hosted by Lisa Loving

 

Royal wedding got you down? Are Barbie-style women still stuck on their pedestals? And what about the rest of us? Are you a woman -- or a man -- who lately feels like everything's 'back to the 60s?' Tune in for Wednesday Morning Talk Radio when our guest is Stephanie Coontz, author of 'A Strange Stirring: The Feminine Mystique at the Dawn of the 60s.'

'..A Strange Stirring reveals how a generation of women came to realize their dissatisfaction with domestic life didn't reflect a personal inadequacy but rather a social and political injustice. Coontz examines women's changing status from the 1920s through the 1950s, compares the dilemmas of working-class and middle-class women, white and black, in the early 1960s, and illuminates the new mystiques and new possibilities facing men and women today'

Nobel Peace Prize Winner Jody Williams: How do we advance the peace movement?

Categories:
program date: 
Fri, 04/08/2011

Host Marianne Barisonek speaks with Jody Williams, 1997 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate and founding coordinator of the International Campaign to Ban Landmines. Jody Williams will be the keynote speaker at the Oregon Physicians for Social Responsibility anniversary dinner on April 15th. She also will speak at the World Peace Institute Lunch at noon on the 15th.

Jody Williams received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1997 for her work to ban landmines through the International Campaign to Ban Landmines, which shared the Peace Prize with her that year. At that time, she became the 10th woman in its almost 100-year history to receive the Prize. Like others who’ve seen the ravages of war, she’s an outspoken peace activist who struggles to reclaim the real meaning of peace—a concept which goes far beyond the absence of armed conflict and is defined by human security, not national security. Williams believes that working for peace is not for the faint of heart. It requires dogged persistence and a commitment to sustainable peace, built on sustainable development, environmental justice and security, and meeting the basic needs of the majority of people on our planet.

Williams continues to be recognized for her contributions to human rights and global security. She is the recipient of fifteen honorary degrees, among other recognitions. 

Since January of 2006, Jody Williams has worked to achieve her peace work through the Nobel Women’s Initiative, which she chairs. Along with sister Laureate Dr. Shirin Ebadi of Iran, she took the lead in establishing the Nobel Women’s Initiative, and was joined by sister Laureates Wangari Maathai (Kenya), Rigoberta Menchu Tum (Guatemala) and Betty Williams and Mairead Maguire (Northern Ireland). Its mission is to use the prestige and access afforded by the Nobel Prize to spotlight and promote efforts of women’s rights activists, researchers and organizations working to advance peace, justice and equality for women. By helping to advance the cause of women, the Nobel Women’s Initiative advances all of humanity.
