Nobel Laureate Tawakkol Karman addresses the FSU Law community.  

In April, FSU Law was honored to host Nobel Laureate Tawakkol Karman for a special reception. Karman is a journalist, politician, human rights activist and mother of three who founded Women Journalists Without Chains in order to promote freedom of expression and democratic rights. She later helped spark the Yemeni uprising during the Arab Spring uprisings and in 2011 shared the Nobel Peace Prize for her work in the areas of peace and women's rights, becoming the first Yemeni, the first Arab woman and the second Muslim woman to win a Nobel Prize. Karman has tirelessly advocated for women’s rights to full participation in peace-building work, as well as human rights and access to education.
