Read the passage below and choose one correct answer for each question.

       Tawakkol Karman was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2011 in recognition of her work in non-violent struggle for the safety of women and for women’s rights to full participation in Yemen.

      Tawakkol was born  in 1979 in Taiz, Yemen’s third largest city. She studied a degree in Commerce from the University of Science and Technology in Sana’a before completing another degree in Political Science from the University of Sana.

      Growing up in a country with political uncertainty, Tawakkol witnessed the unification of North and South Yemen in 1990, followed by a civil war in 1994 in which the North gained victory over the South.

      As a journalist and human rights activist, Tawakkol responded to the political instability and human rights abuses in Yemen by organizing others and reporting injustices. In 2005, she founded the organization Women Journalists Without Chains (WJWC) which supports rights and freedoms and provides media skills to journalists. In addition, the organization releases regular reports in human rights abuses in Yemen, recording more than 50 cases of attacks and unfair sentences against newspapers and writers so far.

      In 2007, Tawakkol began organizing weekly protests in Yemen’s capital, Sana’a, aiming at calling for inquiries into social and legal injustice. Tawakkol’s weekly protests continued until 2011 when she redirected protesters to support the Arab Spring. Tawakkol even brought Yemen’s revolution to New York speaking directly with UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon and organizing public meetings at the UN headquarters.

       Brave and outspoken, Tawakkol has been imprisoned on a number of occasions for her opposition movement for human rights. She is known as “Mother of the Revolution”, and “The Iron Woman”.

       Since receiving the Nobel Peace Prize, she has continued to support female journalists and encouraged people in Yemen to ask for social justice and human rights. Fiercely committed to change, Tawakkol spends the majority of her time in a tent in Change Square, where she continues her peaceful protest for justice and freedom.
