“It’s one thing for all of us who are based in the US, who have the First Amendment to protect us – yes, it’s dangerous when we go overseas but we can leave. The women that we honor with this Award don’t have that luxury. We see them as heroes but they are certainly not heroes in their own countries, nor do they aspire to be heroes in their own countries.”

- Christiane Amanpour, IWMF Board of Directors
