The 2012 Nobel Peace Prize will be announced this Friday. No matter who wins this year, it's fair to say the international community is at last taking notice that women are in the forefront of peace efforts around the globe. Last year, three African women were honored with the Nobel Peace prize. And this year the University of San Diego is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its Women Peacemakers program.
