Shirin Ebadi and Nargess Tavassolian for The Sunday Times Magazine

A woman who has tirelessly devoted her life to the defence of others, in particular those threatened by her home country's regime. She is the winner of the 2003 Nobel Peace Prize for her efforts towards democracy and human rights and has had to live in exile since 2009.
