Great Reads: December is Universal Human Rights Month

Human Rights Day is observed every year on December 10 — the day the United Nations General Assembly adopted, in 1948, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). The UDHR is a milestone document that proclaims the inalienable rights to which everyone is entitled as a human being - regardless of race, color, religion, sex, language, political or other opinions, national or social origin, property, birth, or another status.

A Call to Action

“A Call to Action addresses the suffering inflicted upon women by a false interpretation of carefully selected religious texts and a growing tolerance of violence and warfare. Key verses are often omitted or quoted out of context by male religious leaders to exalt the status of men and exclude women. And in nations that accept or even glorify violence, this perceived inequality becomes the basis for abuse. This is an informed and passionate charge about a devastating effect on economic prosperity and unconscionable human suffering. It affects us all.” -Simon and Schuster

Until We Are Free

“Until We Are Free” is not just a political memoir; it’s also the life story of a woman, wife, and mother. The book reminds us that tireless human rights activists are also human beings, with their own concerns, fears, attachments, and interests. Through her book, Ebadi opens the window to her unseen personal life by sharing with us bits and pieces of her past. With her particular obsession in describing every detail, Ebadi does not just narrate a story but paints a scene. “Until We Are Free” is not a story of a superhuman woman. It is the honest narrative of a normal human being, with all her ups and downs in life – a one-time judge who set her sights on a goal a long time ago and is determined to pursue it no matter what, until justice is served.” -Christian Science Monitor
