Monday, March 9, 2009 :As we mark International Women's Day we speak with world-renowned human rights lawyer and advocate, Mary Robinson. She is the former president of Ireland, the first woman ever to hold the office. She is also the former UN High Commissioner for Human Rights. Robinson speaks about the international women's conference hosted in Liberia by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Africa's first female president; being chosen as one of Nelson Mandela's 'elders'; and the ongoing struggle for women's rights from Afghanistan to Iraq to Iran.
