“Ebadi, who is the first Iranian and Muslim female to receive the honor, has maintained that democracy and Islam are compatible. A devout Muslim, she has fought against conservative Islamic rulers on behalf of women and children, in particular. Her efforts represent a radical change in a country where clerics maintain strict rules.”
I am very pleased about this. Iran, and all the middle east needs some brave women to stand and be heard.
This woman literally risks her life to do what she is doing.
