    Passing the Torch: Lessons Learned for Future Generations of Women Advocates, features special guest Shirin Ebadi, the first Muslim woman to win the Nobel Peace Prize. Ebadi is also the first woman appointed as judge in Iran, where she was subsequently barred from her post after the Islamic Revolution on the basis of her gender. Returning to the courts as a private lawyer to defend controversial political and human rights cases led to her own incarceration and 25 days in solitary confinement.
