A Tunisian Girl
Lina Ben Mhenni is a professor at the University of Tunis and an active blogger in French, English and Arabic since 2007. Despite the risks, she blogged from Tunisia and tried to inform people about the repression and censorship experienced under the Ben Ali regime. During the events of December 2010 and January 2011, she went as far as travelling to places like Sidi Bouzid and Kasrine to document the repression and killings. She now keeps a careful watch on political developments in the new Tunisia.
