Iranian Activist Wins Nobel Peace Prize
As reported in the October 10, 2003 Chicago Sun-Times and elsewhere across the world, human rights activist Shirin Ebadi won the 2003 Nobel Peace Prize today for her work fighting for democracy and the rights of women and children, the first Muslim woman and the first Iranian to receive the accolade.

The acclaimed film IRAN, VEILED APPEARANCES captures the on-the-ground reality of Ebadi's ideological comrades in Iran, as well as the attitudes of Iranians still firmly committed to the Islamic revolution.
