On the Centenary of the Peace Palace (August 28, 2013), Leymah Gbowee (2011 Nobel Peace Prize Winner) unveiled the bust of Bertha von Suttner. The placement of von Suttner's bust in the Peace Palace marks the first time that a bust of a woman goes into the Peace Palace. After a toast from Ban Ki Moon (Secretary General of the United Nations), Hope Elizabeth May introduces Leymah Gbowee. Judith Pfaeltzer (wearing a grey dress) the Dutch artist who created the bust, proudly observes the unveiling. Gbowee's presence in The Hague for the Peace Palace Centenary was generously supported by Central Michigan University (CMU). CMU’s sponsorship of Gbowee's visit to The Hague and the other Peace Palace Centenary activities in which she took part, continues the legacy of the early leaders of CMU whom, in von Suttner’s time, were deeply involved in public education concerning the 19th century peace movement.
