Lawyer, activist and former prisoner of conscience Shadi Sadr is an expert on women's rights in Iran. She was once the director of an advisory centre for women since shut down by the government. She also set up a campaign site for equal rights for women. As a result, she has been arrested several times by the Iranian authorities. In November 2009, she received the Human Rights Tulip award from the Dutch government in honour of her extraordinary courage in the face of opposition.
