I would like to applaud the Iranian women bloggers at we-change.org who recently received the “Net Citizen” award. Because of their strength and determination, these bloggers were able to issue reports online about the unrest in Iran after last year’s election, despite being detained by the Iranian government for their reporting. The blog now plays an important role in disseminating information about women’s rights in Iran. Yes, blogging can become a powerful tool!
The Net Citizen award is presented by Google and Reporters Without Borders to defend freedom of expression online. Please read more about this award and the recipients at Google Honours Iranian Women Bloggers.
