Women's History Month: Jody Williams

Jody Williams, an outstanding organizer, coordinated global  groups to stop the use of landmines--to a worldwide decision, 

the Ottawa Treaty    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ottawa_Treaty

Williams is quoted as saying, "The image of peace with a dove flying over a rainbow and people holding hands singing kumbaya ends up infantilizing people who believe that sustainable peace is possible. If you think that singing and looking at a rainbow will suddenly make peace appear then you’re not capable of meaningful thought, or understanding the difficulties of the world."
