Dr. Shirin Ebadi, a Nobel Laureate and the first woman president of Tehran’s city court, delivered the Gruber Distinguished Lecture in Global Justice at Yale Law School on March 3, 2014. Ebadi's Lecture was titled "Human Rights in the Muslim World.”
Dr. Ebadi was awarded the 2003 Nobel Peace Prize for her work on behalf of Iranian children, women, and political prisoners. She served as president of Tehran’s city court until she was dismissed from the bench, along with other women judges, following the Islamic Revolution in 1979. Dr. Ebadi now lives in exile in the United Kingdom, where she continues her advocacy, through her writings, through her representation of political dissidents, and through her work with numerous human rights organizations, some of which she was instrumental in founding.
The lecture was presented by the Gruber Program for Global Justice and Women’s Rights at Yale Law School. The event features speakers whose exceptional achievements have served the causes of global justice and women’s rights. The 2012 inaugural lecture featured U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
