Imagine that the president overnight decreed that women must cover themselves from head to toe lest they be imprisoned. Imagine suddenly a new brigade of morality police appears on the scene to patrol for unacceptable behavior, jailing and beating transgressors on sight. Imagine a new regime of rules that sentenced women defending themselves against rape to death. This is the world that Nazanin Afshin-Jam, a Canadian-Iranian human rights activist, and her family left following the Islamic revolution in Iran. Below, Afshin-Jam recounts her amazing story and successful campaigns to save lives in the Islamic Republic of Iran through her own individual initiative. Addressing an audience at the 2011 TEDx [2] event in Vancouver, Canada, Afshin-Jam reveals her hope to one day create an international body of justice for the victims of human rights abuses in the world.
