Extrait de l’excellent article d’Elena, que vous pouvez suivre, en anglais, sur le blog : No Country For Young Women 

Women's Forum - Shirin Ebadi & Leymah Gbowee | No Country for Young Women

Some highlights from Shirin Ebadi‘s speech:

We can truly have an Arab spring when women in those countries will have equal rights.

‘Education as a way to liberation’ has always been my motto.

Iran has the strongest women’s movement in the Islamic world. That’s because 65% of our university students are women.

Islamic fundamentalists oppose the education of women because that would make women aware of their rights.
