Narges Mohammadi, a jailed Iranian human rights activist, was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize on Friday, with the Norwegian Nobel Committee citing her “fight against the oppression of women in Iran and her fight to promote human rights and freedom for all.”

Mohammadi has been imprisoned for most of the past two decades and is currently serving a 10-year sentence.

In 2011, she was arrested for the first time and was imprisoned for assisting incarcerated activists along with their families.
