Description - Navi Pillay by Sam Naidu

In September 2008, Navi Pillay was appointed UN High Commissioner for Human Rights. Pillay, a trailblazer in Human Rights law, was born in 1941 to a humble Indian family in apartheid South Africa. She faced enormous obstacles to her aspirations for further education and a meaningful career. However, in 1967 she was the first black woman in South Africa to set up a law practice, and in 1995, when the first democratic government was formed in South Africa, Nelson Mandela nominated Pillay as the first black female judge in the Supreme Court. Pillay has become one of the world's leading advocates in the field of Human Rights.
