She donated her $500,000 in Nobel prize money to the Aid Fund for Families of Martyrs and Wounded in the Peaceful Revolution. A journalist and politician, Karman is president of Women Journalists Without Chains and a senior member of the Al-Islah political party. She has been imprisoned on a number of occasions for her pro-democracy, pro-human rights protests.
