Learn more about Tawakkol Karman:

Tawakkol Karman grew up in a politically tumultuous country and witnessed the unification of North and South Yemen in 1990. A journalist by profession and human rights activist by nature, Tawakkol responded to the political instability and human rights abuses in Yemen by mobilizing others and reporting on injustices. In 2007, Tawakkol began organizing weekly protests in Yemen’s capitol targeting systemic government repression and calling for inquiries into corruption and other forms of social and legal injustice. The weekly protests continued until 2011, when Tawakkol mobilized protesters to support the Arab Spring, a movement calling for government reform across the Middle East and Northern Africa.
