Human-rights attorney Dr. Shirin Ebadi, the first Muslim woman ever to win the Nobel Peace Prize, discusses her powerful new memoir, Until We Are Free: My Fight for Human Rights in Iran at the JCCSF. After being kicked off her judge's bench during the 1979 Islamic Revolution, Ebadi angered the Iranian government with her work as an attorney in private practice, leading them to launch a campaign of intimidation that led to imprisonment, death threats, mob attacks and the destruction of her marriage and legal practice. But none of it would stop her from fighting for the rights of women and children against Iran's brutal regime. Now in de facto exile from her home country, Ebadi continues her quest for justice. Hear the story from this amazing woman herself at this sure-to-be-stirring event.
