Women’s Rights Activists Win Nobel Peace Prize

Much thanks to Skepchick's Rebecca Watson for this one.

Although the committee has made some strange decisions in the past, (such as Obama's prize. Still not sure what the hell he did to deserve one, but anyway...) this one is, to borrow a cliched sports metaphor, a slam dunk.

The plight of women in Africa and the Middle East is one that we can never forget. All the freedoms I enjoy mean jack and squat until freedom is enjoyed by all.

Here's to Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Leymah Gbowee, and Tawakul Karman.

Here's to Heroes!
