A global call-to-action for youth leaders, educational institutions, and organizations around the world.

The first Muslim woman to receive the Nobel Peace Prize, Shirin Ebadi has inspired millions around the globe through her work as a human rights lawyer defending women and children against a brutal
regime in Iran. "Until We Are Free" tells her story of courage and defiance in the face of a government out to destroy her, her family, and her mission: to bring justice to the people and the country she loves.
"Until We Are Free," tells of one woman's struggle
against the system. The Iranian government would end up taking everything from Shirin Ebadi- her marriage, her home, her legal career, even her Nobel Prize- but the one thing it could never steal was her spirit to fight for justice and a better future. This is the amazing, at times harrowing, simply astonishing story of a woman who would never give up, no matter the risks.
