“Forbidden Voices”—Stories of women bloggers who are speaking out about inequality in various cultures.
CNN’s Hazel Pfeifer presents this report about a new documentary. It features three courageous women who live in countries where governments attempt to suppress women’s calls for social justice but who speak out anyway—through their blogs. Their blogs are widely read throughout the world. “These women pay a high price for their blogs—suffering violence, harassment and detainment by some of the world’s most repressive regimes,” says Pfeifer. In addition to the link above, you can go to the documentary’s own website to learn more about it and watch the trailer.
