Please join us for a lecture by the 2023 Sydney Peace Prize Laureate, Nazanin Boniadi, for lending a powerful voice to support the woman, life, freedom movement.
Each year, the Sydney Peace Prize brings the Sydney community together to talk about peace, justice, and non-violence, and to honour one of the world’s most inspiring peacemakers.
This year’s Peace Prize has been awarded to Iranian-born human rights advocate Nazanin Boniadi for her decades-long commitment to advancing women’s rights in Iran.
The Peace Prize jury selected Ms Boniadi from a strong field of nominations “for drawing attention to human rights violations, for lending a powerful voice to support Iranian women and girls and their #WomanLifeFreedom movement, and for using a high-profile platform to promote freedom and justice in Iran.”
Following the death of 22-year-old Iranian woman Mahsa Amini last year, she was instrumental in bringing the human rights of women and others in Iran into sharp focus on the world stage and has put the case before the UN Security Council, the US Senate Human Rights Caucus, the British Parliament, and forums across the globe.
