Earning a Nobel Peace Prize From a Notorious Iran Prison

From a New York Times story by Farnaz Fassihi headlined “Narges Mohammadi, Iranian Rights Activist, Receives Nobel Peace Prize”:

Narges Mohammadi, Iran’s most prominent human rights activist and an inmate in the country’s notorious Evin Prison, was awarded the 2023 Nobel Peace Prize on Friday, in an effort by the Norwegian Nobel Committee to support women’s rights in Iran.

Ms. Mohammadi, 51, has spent most of the last decade in and out of prison, charged with “spreading anti-state propaganda,” and she is currently serving a 10-year sentence — part of Iran’s long campaign to silence and punish her for her activism.
