    (October 9, 1950- )
    Born in Battleboro, Vermont
    Coordinator for the International Campaign to Ban Landmines (1992- )
    Won the Nobel Peace Prize (1997)
    The land mine ban she helped negotiate, the Ottawa Treaty, has the loophole that the three biggest landmine producers - the US, Russia and China - never signed it.
    Some observers felt the Nobel Prize should have gone to her boss, Bobby Mueller.
    She and Mueller stopped speaking after the award.
    Her brash style has been criticized as counterproductive.
    She called Bill Clinton a 'weenie' for not signing the Ottawa Treaty.
    She was a teacher of English as a second language.
    She became interested in human rights after being handed a leaflet on the subway.
    The Ottawa treaty was signed by over 150 countries, 74 of which have completed destruction of their stockpiles of landmines.
    She commented, 'None of us thought we would ever ban landmines. I never thought it would happen in just six years.'
