    Shirin Ebadi biography

    Human rights speaker Shirin Ebadi won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2003, making her the first Muslim woman to accomplish this milestone. She is an avid fighter for human rights, especially when it comes to fighting for Iran, her country of birth. And it was all her human rights work that gained her the Nobel Peace Prize in 2003, mainly for helping children, women, and political prisoners. 

    Furthermore, speaker Shiring Ebadi was the first woman to become Chief Justice and one of Iran’s first female judges. During the 1979 revolution, Shiring had to leave the judiciary. She then became an attorney defending the rights of political dissidents. As a result of her work, Shirin ended up in jail multiple times and received threats against her life. Although she is now exiled from Iran, Shirin continues to speak out against human rights violations and advocate for legal reforms in her homeland.

    Additionally, she founded a number of organizations, such as the Defenders of Human Rights Center. In addition, she co-founded the Nobel Women’s Initiative. Shirin also created a campaign with the goal of terminating legal discrimination against women in Iranian law. She often lectures at universities worldwide. 

    Moreover, she wrote 13 books, including her memoir Iran Awakening. In 2016, she wrote the book Until We Are Free. The book covers the government’s efforts to intimidate and silence Ebadi and the challenges she has faced, including the harassment of her colleagues, the detention of her daughter, and the arrest of her sister on false charges. Despite these challenges, Ebadi has continued to speak out and fight for justice, even as the government has attempted to take everything from her, including her marriage, her friends, her career, and even her Nobel Prize.
