It was a huge accomplishment for three women today, as they were jointly awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

Who knew three people could even win it at the same time!

The honorable ladies were Liberian president Ellen Johnson sir leaf and Leymah Gbowee, a social worker and peace campaigner from the same country.

The third was Tawakkul Karman.  She's an activists and journalist who was a big part of opposition role in Yemen.

The trio was recognized for their struggles against the backdrops of the Arab spring and democratic progress in Africa.

Awarding the prize has been a tradition since 1901.

Congratulations, ladies!
