Nobel Peace Laureate: Shirin Ebadi
In 1992, Ebadi acquired her lawyer's license and established her own practice. She prioritized cases that involved the unfair treatment of women and children. Ebadi became one of the most well-known lawyers in Iran and defended the families of serial murder victims and child abuse victims. Ebadi has lived in exile in the United Kingdom since June 2009 because of death threats from the Iranian government. She continues to work for human rights around the world. Ebadi has been a board member of PeaceJam since 2004.
