During more than 60 years of activism, she has founded or revived organizations including Physicians for Social Responsibility; led protests, spoken to presidents, been a Nobel Peace Prize nominee and the focus of an Academy Award-winning film, as she influenced several generations of activists to stand up against these weapons of mass destruction in the hopes of avoiding nuclear war.
