Iran Awakening: A Memoir of Revolution and Hope by Shirin Ebadi
During her career as a lawyer, writer, and dissident, Shirin Ebadi has spoken out for her native Iran. As a human rights advocate and winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, she has given Iran reason to hope for a better future. Ebadi provides an account of a woman standing at the crossroads of history. A lawyer who defends women and children in politically charged cases, she serves as a rebellious voice in a land where such voices are brutally silenced. Ebadi, a committed Muslim, speaks eloquently about the ideals of the 1979 Islamic Revolution. A devoted daughter, wife and mother, she has braved imprisonment, harassment, assassination attempts and her family's humiliation, for the dream of a better Iran.
