Jody Williams is a political activist from America, who is best known to be the founding coordinator of ICBL, the International Campaign to Ban Landmines, with which she makes efforts to eradicate use of antipersonnel landmines. She has also been recognized as the Nobel Peace prize winner since 1997. She has co-founded ICBL in 1992, and more than 100 countries signed a treaty for banning landmines in 1997, with which her efforts seem to be awarded.
Jody was the 2nd of the five children of her parents. Her father was a county judge, her mother used to oversee public housing projects, and she had an elder brother who was bullied by others because he was deaf and had schizophrenia. After schooling, Jody started teaching English as ESL in Mexico, Washington DC and UK.
