Nasrin Sotoudeh in Evin prison
"Nasrin Sotoudeh won an important victory this week against human rights abusers in Iran's government. After enduring a 49-day hunger strike demanding that travel restrictions on her daughter be reversed, the Iranian government finally gave in.
But Nasrin remains in Evin prison and is one of hundreds of prisoners of conscience languishing in jails in Iran.
Representative Dennis Kucinich is introducing a resolution Tuesday calling for Nasrin Sotoudeh's unconditional release and urging for President Obama to utilize direct diplomacy with Iran to support human rights."
