Freedom of expression. Conference by Shirin Ebadi

Querétaro 2018, 

The winner of the 2003 Nobel Peace Prize, the first Muslim woman in history to receive it, is an Iranian lawyer who specializes in human rights. Currently in exile in London, she continues to work for human rights and democracy, despite having received numerous threats and reprisals from the Iranian authorities, including the confiscation of her Nobel Prize. Ebadi will talk about the importance of defending human rights and, more specifically, the rights of women, based on her own experience as one of the first female judges in Iran and involved in the prohibition of lawyers after the 1979 revolution.
