Activists Masih Alinejad and Zehra Doğan awarded ‘Freethinker’ prize

The Swiss Freethinker Association has awarded its 2017 “Freethinker” prize to two pioneering women: Kurdish journalist and painter Zehra Doğan and writer-activist Masih Alinejad.

 

Sadly, neither woman could attend the awards ceremony. Doğan, the editor of the feminist Kurdish news agency Jinha, has been sentenced to nearly three years in prison for creating a painting of a Kurdish town destroyed by Turkish security forces. Alinejad, a guest on the Women in the World stage numerous times, including at an event in September, is the founder of the “My Stealthy Freedom” Facebook page, which encourages women to post photos of themselves without their hijabs, and she lives in exile in the United States.
