A Conversation with Shirin Ebadi and Sarah Leah Whitson on Women's Rights
A conversation on Women's Rights in Iran with Dr. Shirin Ebadi and Human Rights Watch's Sarah Leah Whitson, moderated by Asli Bali, Professor of Law at the UCLA School of Law and Director of the UCLA Center for Near Eastern Studies.

Dr. Shirin Ebadi was one of Iran's first female judges and served as the first female chief magistrate of one of the country's
highest courts until the 1979 Islamic Revolution stripped her of her judgeship. In the 1990s Ebadi returned to the law as a
defender of women's and children's rights, founding a human rights center that spear-headed legal reform and public
debate around the Islamic Republics discriminatory laws. She has defended many of the country's most prominent
prisoners of conscience and spent nearly a month in prison in 1999 for her activities. For many years she was at the center of
Iran's grassroots women's movement. In 2003 she was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for her work. Since the election
uprising of June 2009 she has lived in exile.
