Oslo, October 6, 2023 — The Norwegian Nobel Committee has announced that it has awarded the Nobel Peace Prize 2023 to Narges Mohammadi for her unwavering fight against the oppression of women in Iran and her dedication to promoting human rights and freedom for all. Despite the personal costs she has had to bear, including being arrested 13 times, convicted five times, and sentenced to 31 years in prison along with 154 lashes, Ms. Mohammadi remains steadfast in her struggle.

According to the committee, Narges Mohammadi is a remarkable woman fighting for human rights and freedom in Iran. By awarding her the Nobel Peace Prize this year, the committee aims to recognize her courageous efforts to promote human rights, liberty, and democracy in Iran. The award also acknowledges the hundreds of thousands of people who have protested against the regime’s discriminatory policies and oppression of women in the preceding year. The committee believes that embracing equal rights for all is essential in achieving the fraternity between nations that Alfred Nobel aimed to promote.

The Nobel Peace Prize has traditionally been awarded to individuals who have worked towards social justice, human rights, and democracy. These are essential factors for lasting peace.
