From AI:
Nasrin Sotoudeh, a lawyer and mother of two, was arrested, unfairly tried and jailed in Iran for her fearless but peaceful defence of women and children - acts deemed to be critical of the government.

This was in September 2010.

During her imprisonment, Nasrin has spent lengthy periods of time in solitary confinement in Tehran's notorious Evin Prison. To protest against the appalling conditions that she and other prisoners face, she has put herself through several hunger strikes. This has left her extremely weak and recent reports indicate she dropped to an alarming 95 lbs after a hunger strike of 49 days.

Alone and isolated in prison, Nasrin has been denied even a picture of her family. She worries about the effect of her absence on her two young children. Still, Nasrin maintains her belief that the pain her family and others in Iran have had to endure is not in vain. She expressed this in a letter to her daughter: “Justice arrives exactly at a time when most have given up hope. It arrives when we least expect it. I am certain of it.”
**************************************************
It is clear that women`s rights the world around are being denied. Sotoudeh was unjustly imprisoned for speaking out about injustice. It is time for all to speak out.

Ah, Iran, that most useless of all technologically advanced nations. It is too bad their humanity has not kept pace with their science. Because they are seriously out of balance.
