Photo of the Day: Tawakkul Karman

وكل كرمان المخلافي‎ (Tawakkul Karman), a distinguished Yemeni human rights activist, founder of the Women Journalists Without Chains, received the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize, together with Liberian president Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and Liberian peace activist Leymah Gbowee. This is a day of honoring the Arab Spring and the great contribution that women across Middle East and Africa bring in the fight for progress and democracy. It is also a great day of celebrating the cultural diversity: unfortunately there are nowadays countries in Europe where arrogant racist policies and mentalities gain momentum, despite long democratic traditions.
