Description

World-famous bloggers Yoani Sanchez, Zeng Jinyan and Farnaz Seifi are not frightened of the dictatorial regimes in their home countries of Cuba, China and Iran. These fearless women stand for a new networked generation of modern rebels. This video follows these young women on their dangerous journey and traces their use of social media like Facebook, YouTube and Twitter to denounce and combat the violations of human rights and freedom of speech in their countries.
