The Nobel Peace Prize for 2011 was awarded on Friday to three women from  Africa and the Arab world in acknowledgment of their nonviolent role in  promoting peace, democracy and gender equality. The winners were  President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf of Liberia — the first woman to be elected president in modern Africa — her compatriot, the peace activist Leymah Gbowee, and Tawakkol Karman of Yemen, a pro-democracy campaigner.
They were the first women to win the prize since Wangari Maathai of Kenya, who died last month, was named as the laureate in 2004.
Most of the recipients in the award’s 110-year history have been men,  and Friday’s decision seemed designed to give impetus to the fight for  women’s rights around the world.
