Jody Williams talked about her newly released autobiography, My Name Is Jody Williams: A Vermont Girl’s Winding Path to the Nobel Peace Prize. She shared details of her Nobel Peace Prize-winning work on the campaign to ban the use of landmines and her career as an advocate for world peace, and the struggles she faced in adjusting to her new life after receiving the award. She described her political ideology as left of liberal and spoke candidly about her departure from the Catholic Church and her relationships with fellow laureates Desmond Tutu and the Dalai Lama. She wrote about meeting her husband, and fellow human rights activist, Stephen Goose, and the struggles they faced together. She describes her motivation for advocacy as righteous indignation and says that she is full of anger at injustice. She talks about the eleven years she spent working on various projects related to the wars in Nicaragua and El Salvador. close
