Shirin Ebadi (2016 Event)

The first Muslim woman and first Iranian to win a Nobel Peace Prize, Shirin Ebadi is a leading lawyer and activist who has campaigned fearlessly for freedom of speech and equality before the law in her country, despite being betrayed politically and personally, and forced into exile from Iran. In this event recorded live at the 2016 Edinburgh International Book Festival, she discusses Until We Are Free, her account of the fight for dignity, human rights and Iranian reform.
