Shirin Ebadi


2011 OFF in Oslo


Shirin Ebadi is an Iranian human rights lawyer, author, and Nobel Laureate. The first female judge in Iranian history, Ebadi, was removed from her post after the 1979 Revolution, when women were deemed unfit to serve as judges. She begins her talk by praising the virtues of freedom of thought and expression—the freedom on which everything else depends.
