Episode 10: Jody Williams
Jody Williams calls herself an average woman, but the Nobel Committee saw it differently when they awarded her the 1997 Peace Prize for her work toward the clearing and banning of land mines. This extraordinary ordinary woman more convincingly asserts that change is achieved by grassroots activism, from the ground up not from the top down, as her own work exemplifies.
PERSON: Gemma the Beehive, a 4'8" Armenian anti-landmine campaigner
PLACE: Her sun-bathed kitchen in Westminster West, VT, and its view
THING: Killer robots, the next generation of drones, capable of pulling the trigger themselves without human orders
