Their voices are suppressed, banned and censored. However, Yoani Sánchez, Zeng Jinyan and Darian Seifi are not intimidated by their dictatorial regimes. These fearless women represent a new, networked generation of modern resistance fighters. In Cuba, Iran and China, these pioneers shake up the State’s monopoly on information with their blogs – and they are risking their lives to do it.
