The life story of Navi Pillay, a trailblazer in Human Rights Law. Pillay was born in 1941 to an Indian family living in apartheid South Africa. In 1967, she was the first non-white woman in South Africa to set up a law practice which she used to defend many anti-apartheid activists and, in 1973, was able to obtain legal representation for the inmates of Robben Island. In 1995, Mandela nominated Pillay as the first non-white female judge in the High Court. In 2008, she was appointed UN High Commissioner for human rights.
