    In a special edition of "The 51 Percent", Annette Young meets three extraordinary women, all of whom are Nobel Peace Prize winners.

    On the panel is Jody Williams, who's been a driving force in an international campaign against landmines. It led to the signing of the Ottawa Convention by 161 nations, banning the use, sale and stockpiling of anti-personnel landmines. She was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1997.

    Also joining us is Leymah Gbowee, a Liberian peace activist who was awarded the prize in 2011 for her work in ending the Liberian civil war.

    Last but by no means least is Shirin Ebadi. She is Iran's first woman judge who won the prize in 2003 for her work in promoting democracy and human rights.

    Annette Young asks the three laureates whether women are naturally better peacemakers.
