First Muslim woman to win the Nobel Peace

Since the Nobel prize was founded in 1901, Iranian lawyer Shirin Ebadi became the first Muslim woman to win the Nobel Peace Prize and the 11th woman to win on Friday for a fearless defense of human rights in an award designed to spur wider democracy in the Islamic world.

Ebadi, 56, won from a record field of 165 candidates including Pope John Paul and ex-Czech President Vaclav Havel. Many hailed the award but former Polish President Lech Walesa, the 1983 Nobel winner, said the Polish pope should have won.
