How about giving Nobel Prizes for 1000 women . Well, it not need take 1000 years to do that! The project "1000 Women for the Nobel Peace Prize 2005" came about as a response to the neglect of sustained efforts by women all over the world in building peace. The website of the 1000 Women for Peace (www.1000peacewomen.org) lists 91 women from India. Nominations for the list were sought in 2003 and were gathered from all over the world with the help of 20 co-ordinators; more than 2,000 women from 153 countries were proposed, the international project team selected 1,000 of these candidates. The official nomination letter was handed in to the Nobel Prize Committee in Oslo on January 27, 2005.

A book of the 1000 peace women demonstrating the work and visions of 1000 women is being produced KONTRAST and internationally published in English by Scalo Publishing, Zurich, Switzerland, by the end of November 2005.

I will buy a copy of it!
