Walking Together for Freedom
Pakistani human rights lawyer Asma Jahangir has fought to defend the human rights of women, religious minorities and laborers in Pakistan for over 40 years, both in & out of the courtroom. She has served as U.N. Special Rapporteur on Extrajudicial, Arbitrary or Summary Executions for the U.N. Commission on Human Rights (1998-2004) and U.N. Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Religion or Belief for the U.N. Human Rights Council (2004-2010).
I spoke with her at The University of San Diego’s Women PeaceMakers Conference, “Breaking Barriers: What it will take to achieve security, justice and peace”.
Asma Jahangir is another amazing woman making a difference.
