Sima Samar

Sima Samar is a doctor and politician. Tirelessly and putting her life at risk, she stands up for human rights, especially those of women in Afghanistan. In 2012 she was awarded the Right Livelihood Award, better known as the Alternative Nobel Prize.

We asked Sima Samar about her motivation, where she gets the energy to put herself constantly in danger, why it is worth showing attitude, and who her role models are.
