    Radhia Nasraoui, born in 1953 in Tunis, is a lawyer specializing in human rights. She began campaigning for human rights in the 1970s and suffered persistent persecution under the regime of former president Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali, who she accused of perpetrating "systematic torture" in the country. Nasraoui helped found the Association Against Torture in Tunisia in 2003. From October 15 to December 10, 2003, she went on hunger strike to protest physical assault she had suffered. Since the fall of Ben Ali, she continues to denounce torture and mistreatment of prisoners. Nasraoui received the Olof Palme Prize for Human Rights in January 2013. She has been married to Hamma Hammami, secretary general of the Tunisian Workers' Party, since 1981, and they have three daughters.
