Feminist Majority Foundation:

Nobel Laureate Shirin Ebadi Needs Your Help

Please join feminists and human rights activists worldwide to help defend the safety and work of Iran’s pre-eminent Nobel Laureate human rights lawyer Dr. Shirin Ebadi.

Dr. Ebadi, a defender of women’s rights, has had her human rights organization forcibly closed by the Iranian authorities. In the latest of a series of serious incidents, an angry mob surrounded Dr. Ebadi’s home and personal office chanting death threats against her and violently vandalizing her building. Last week, authorities raided Dr. Ebadi’s personal office and seized her writings, confidential legal files, and two computers amid claims of so-called tax evasion.

Write to urge Iran’s swift reversal of these actions against Dr. Shirin Ebadi and to guarantee her protection. To take action and send a letter to Iranian authorities expressing your concerns visit the site of the Feminist Majority Foundation.
