The One Million Signatures Campaign has been recognized as the special winner of the Eleanor Roosevelt 2009 Global Women's Rights Awards, along with Christiane Amanpour and other people who have contributed part or all of their lives or careers to women's rights issues. The Campaign received the award last night, April 29th 2009, at a gala dinner reception hosted by the Feminist Majority Foundation in the Beverly Hills Hotel, Los Angeles, California.
After reading a short introduction about the Campaign, Dolores Huerta acknowledged the pressure induced on Campaign members, the imprisonment of Alieh Eghdam Doust, the attendance of two of the Tehran based activists, Fariba Davoodi Mohajer and Sussan Tahmasebi, at the gala, and congratulated the Campaign on the news of the release of Maryam Malek from prison. Dolores Huerta then handed out the 2009 Global Women's Rights Awards to the Campaign. The One Million Signatures Campaign was honored in special recognition of its ground-breaking work to demand an end to laws in Iran that discriminate against women.
