It's Time for Women to Stand Together Against Nukes

A special message from Naomi Watts and former CIA operative Valerie Plame Wilson



Over the next decade, the US government will spend $600 billion on nuclear weapons. That's while the government cuts budgets for teachers and schools suffer from overcrowding. Then, when our kids are ready to go to college, they'll face ongoing tuition hikes and less financial aid.

With education, health care and social services on the chopping block, now is the time for us to speak up.

Women, War and Peace

This year's Nobel Peace Prize was award to the three women above for their non-violent revolutionary ways. I could not contain my glee on Friday when I heard the news. I was clicking all over the internet for stories on them. The piece at Democracy Now! shouldn't be missed.

Tonight PBS starts a five-part series, Women, War and Peace, that will explore the issues these women deal with on a daily basis. I think only Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and Leymah Gbowee are actually featured in the series, but the issues faced by women in the Arab world will be featured.

The series airs weekly, so set the DVR so you don't miss it!

And congrats again to these fabulous women!
