  • Alison Hewson (née Stewart; born 23 March 1961) is an Irish activist and businesswoman. She is the wife of singer and musician Paul Hewson, known as Bono, from the rock group U2.Raised in Raheny, she met her future husband at age 12 at Mount Temple Comprehensive School, and married him in 1982. She was awarded a degree in politics and sociology from University College, Dublin (UCD) in 1989. The couple have four children together and live at residences in Ireland, France, and the United States. She has inspired several U2 songs, most famously "Sweetest Thing."Hewson became involved in anti-nuclear activism in the 1990s. She narrated Black Wind, White Land, a 1993 Irish documentary about the lasting effects of the Chernobyl disaster, and has worked closely with activist Adi Roche. She has been a patron of Chernobyl Children's Project International since 1994 and has participated in a number of aid missions to the high-radiation exclusion zones of Belarus. She has also campaigned against Sellafield, the northern English nuclear facility. In 2002 she helped lead an effort which sent more than a million postcards, urging the site be closed, to Prime Minister Tony Blair and others. Hewson has repeatedly been discussed by tabloid newspapers as a possible candidate for political offices, including President of Ireland; none of these suggestions have come to fruition.Hewson is the co-founder of two ethical businesses, the EDUN fashion line in 2005, and Nude Skincare products in 2007. The former, intended to promote fair trade with Africa, has struggled to become a viable business. French conglomerate LVMH has made substantial investments into both companies. (en)
  • Alison Hewson, née Alison Stewart le 23 mars 1961, est une militante et femme d'affaires irlandaise. Elle est l'épouse du chanteur et musicien Paul Hewson, dit Bono, du groupe de rock U2. Élevée à Raheny, elle a rencontré son futur mari à l'âge de 12 ans à la Mount Temple Comprehensive School. Ils se sont mariés en 1982. En 1989, elle a obtenu un diplôme en politique et sociologie de l'University College de Dublin (UCD). Le couple a quatre enfants et vit dans des résidences sur la côte au sud de Dublin, à Èze sur la côte d’Azur et à New York aux États-Unis. Elle a inspiré plusieurs chansons de U2, dont Sweetest Thing. Ali Hewson s’est impliquée dans l'activisme antinucléaire dans les années 1990. Elle explique les effets durables de la catastrophe de Tchernobyl dans Black Wind, White Land, un documentaire irlandais sorti en 1993, et a travaillé en étroite collaboration avec l'activiste . Elle est mécène du Projet international pour les Enfants de Tchernobyl depuis 1994 et a participé à un certain nombre de missions d'aide dans les zones à forte radiation de la Biélorussie. Elle a également fait campagne contre Sellafield, l'installation nucléaire du nord de l'Angleterre. En 2002, elle a participé à l’envoi de plus d'un million de cartes postales demandant instamment la fermeture du site, aux responsables politiques britanniques et notamment le Premier ministre Tony Blair. À plusieurs reprises, des journaux à sensation ont évoqué Ali Hewson comme candidate potentielle à des postes politiques, y compris celui de président de la République d’Irlande, mais aucune de ces suggestions ne s'est concrétisée. Par ailleurs, Ali Hewson est la co-fondatrice de deux entreprises éthiques, la ligne de mode Edun (dont le nom est le verlan de « nude », nu en anglais) en 2005, et les produits Nude Skincare en 2007. La première, destinée à promouvoir le commerce équitable avec l'Afrique, a eu du mal à devenir une entreprise viable. Le conglomérat français LVMH a cependant réalisé d’importants investissements dans les deux sociétés en 2009. (fr)

  • "Our marriage has worked because we like each other, because we talk to each other, and we are passionate about what we do. We allow each other to pursue our goals. I wouldn't want to be married to someone who wasn't happy with what they were doing in life, and B wouldn't either. I have learned a lot about what it means to be married, how great it can be if you persevere. We're very close. He says I'm very good with the dog whistle." (en)
  • "I don't have a skill. My biggest regret in life is that I never became a nurse because I'd be able to go out to all these countries and really help hands-on and really get stuck in." (en)
  • "I would wake up in bed in the foetal position, and Ali would say: 'What's wrong?' I'd tell her, 'I don't want to get out of bed.' And she'd say, 'You don't want to write is what you mean.' ... Ali was literally kicking me out of bed in the morning, putting the pen in my hand." (en)
