Liberian Nobel laureates among women planning march across Korean

(By Afp)

Two Nobel Peace laureates and American feminist Gloria Steinem are among a group of 30 women planning to march across the demilitarized zone between North and South Korea to press demands for reunification.

Steinem told a news conference at the United Nations on Wednesday that the march scheduled for May 24 would draw on women's successes in peacemaking to advance calls for Korean peace.

Taking part in the march will be Liberian activist Leymah Gbowee, who won the Nobel in 2011 for mobilizing Liberian women against her country's brutal war and Mairead Corrigan Maguire, whose peace efforts in Northern Ireland were recognized with the prize in 1976. RAED MORE OF THIS STORY
