Where We Live: Shirin Ebadi

Shirin Ebadi is an Iranian Human Rights attorney, who in 2003 was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for her work on behalf of democracy and human rights - especially for women and children.  She’s speaking on the “Role of the West in Iran’s Struggle for Freedom,” this Saturday, March 26th at 6:30 at Hartford Seminary.  She’s also the headline speaker for the 2011 PeaceJam Northeast Youth Conference at Watkinson School in Hartford this weekend. 

Dr. Ebadi was exiled in 2009 and joins us by phone from her home in England.  She is speaking through a translator who is on the phone in Australia.
