How sisterhood, prayer and sex changed a nation at war. Defy a dictator. Unite your people. End a war. As a young woman, Leymah Gbowee was broken by the Liberian civil war, a brutal conflict that tore apart her life and claimed the lives of countless relatives and friends. Years of fighting destroyed her country - and shattered Gbowee's girlhood hopes and dreams. As a young mother trapped in a nightmare of domestic abuse, she found the courage to turn her bitterness into action, propelled by her realisation that it is women who suffer most during conflicts - and that the power of women working together can create an unstoppable force. In 2003, Gbowee helped organise and then led the Liberian Mass Action for Peace, a coalition of Christian and Muslim women who sat in public protest, confronting Liberia's ruthless president and rebel warlords, and even held a sex strike. Mighty Be Our Powers is a gripping chronicle of Gbowee's journey from hopelessness to empowerment and how, together with the women of Liberia, she delivered peace to a nation. 'Mighty Be Our Powers reminds us that even in the worst of times, humanity's best can shine through' - ARCHBISHOP DESMOND tUtU, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate
