Summary
The winner of the 2003 Nobel Peace Prize is an advocate for the oppressed, whose spirit has remained strong in the face of political persecution. Best known here as the lawyer working tirelessly on behalf of Canadian photojournalist Zara Kazemi--raped, tortured and murdered in Iran--Dr. Ebadi offers us a vivid picture of the struggles of one woman against the system. The book chronicles her childhood in a loving, untraditional family, her upbringing before the Revolution that toppled the Shah, her marriage and her faith, as well as her life as a mother and lawyer battling an oppressive regime in the courts while bringing up her girls. Outspoken, controversial, Ebadi became the first female judge in Iran; when the religious authorities declared women unfit as judges, she fought her way back as a human rights lawyer, defending women and children in cases that most lawyers were afraid to represent.--From publisher description
