Publicidade

Shirin Ebadi é uma advogada, ex-juíza e ativista dos direitos humanos. Em 10 de outubro de 2003, recebeu o Prêmio Nobel da Paz pelo significativo e pioneiro esforço pela democracia e direitos humanos, em especial direitos de crianças, mulheres e refugiados. Foi a primeira cidadã iraniana e a primeira mulher muçulmana a receber um Nobel.

Em 2009, o prêmio teria sido confiscado pelas autoridades iranianas, alegação desmentida pelo governo de Teerã. Se verdade, ela teria sido a primeira laureada na história do Prêmio Nobel a ter seu prêmio confiscado.

Desde junho de 2009, Ebadi vive exilada no Reino Unido por causa da crescente perseguição aos cidadãos iranianos críticos do regime de Teerã.

„I compare my situation to a person on board a ship. When there is a shipwreck the passenger then falls in the ocean and has no choice but to keep swimming. What happened in our society was that the laws overturned every right that women had. I had no choice. I could not get tired, I could not lose hope. I cannot afford to do that.“

„In my memoir, I wanted to introduce American women to Iranian women and our lives. I'm not from the highest echelons of society, nor the lowest. I'm a women who is a lawyer, who is a professor at a university, who won the Nobel Peace Prize. At the same time, I cook. And even when I'm about to go to prison, one of the first things I do is to make enough food and put it in the fridge for my family.“
