A Nobel Peace Prize laureate will deliver the University of Maine School of Law’s second annual Justice for Women Lecture. The school said Leymah Gbowee of Liberia will deliver her speech Wednesday. Gbowee is an activist who led a peace movement that helped bring an end to the Liberian civil war in 2003. She was awarded the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize, along with President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf of Liberia and Tawakkul Karman, a female icon of the protest movement in Yemen.
