Narges Mohammadi is a champion of human rights. (Pronounce her first name Nar-guess.) She believes in more equality and freedoms for women in Iran. She also believes no one should be killed as a punishment, regardless of what they have done. Narges has spent much of her life working on those issues and often spoke in public about them.
But the government of Iran does not agree with the beliefs that Narges has. Once they stopped her from giving a speech on the role of women and democracy in Iran. In April of 2012, they put her in jail to stop her from doing her work.
The government gave Narges two trials but neither of them were handled fairly. And they resulted in a total sentence of 22 years in jail.
