From her modest beginnings to becoming the tenth woman to receive the Nobel Peace Prize, Jody Williams takes us through the ups and downs of her tumultuous and remarkable life. As Eve Ensler says, “Jody Williams is many things—a simple girl from Vermont, a sister of a disabled brother, a loving wife, an intense character full of fury and mischief, a great strategist, an excellent organizer, a brave and relentless advocate, and a Nobel Peace Prize winner. But to me Jody Williams is, first and foremost, an activist.”
