If the picture of Ebtekar that emerges defies simple summation, it could be because she has carried dozens of labels over the years: that of reformist, terrorist, environmentalist, women's rights activist, scientist, vice president, wife and mother.
Ebtekar is married with two sons, one of whom is studying agroeconomics in Tehran.
It is not hard then to see why Ebtekar has taken such a dim view of the West's concern in Iran's nuclear program, which she sees as part of a larger campaign by the Bush administration to demonize and tarnish Iran.
