Getting imprisoned with her friends, they were raped and abused. Despite her age, she could escape from the jail and moved to Germany, where she's living now.

Rigoberta Menchú Tum
She received the Nobel Peace Prize for her works to be a mediator for social justice and ethno-cultural which are related to the indigenous people's rights. This recognition was awarded in 1992. Actually, Rigoberta Grew up by watching and being a victim for extreme violence, seeing what had happened to her family. These scenes of violence made her conscious how important was to end violence toward indigenous populations.
Then, she gave a try to discuss about this violence with European groups who accepted to work with her when she flew to Mexico in early 1980s.
A woman from Yemen who was fighting to establish full participation for peace-building work. Meanwhile, this fight was led without violence. That's why in 2011, the Nobel Peace Prize Committee awarded her this Prize. Contrarily to those who had gone through violence, she had a good life because she is a daughter of a politician and journalist father. She chose this way and became journalist and reached her Bachelor degree in Political Science.

Those courses are admirable and respectable, seeing audacious women and not letting them alone but pushing them forward. Those courses look like Prem Rawat's, a revolutionary visionary person. He is an influencer and ambassador of peace, who tries what he can to spread this philosophy. Prem Rawat convinced of the importance of finding and getting peace inside to share this around the world. Now, we can't say that women are "weak" because those stories show their courage and ambition.
