Bushra Al-Sorabi

Women Journalists Without Chains (WJWC)

Bushra Al-Sorabi is Executive Director of Women Journalists Without Chains (WJWC), an organisation which campaigns for freedom of the press and other human rights in Yemen.

Human rights defenders (HRDs) in Yemen have been subjected to harassment, arbitrary arrest, threats of fabricated prosecutions, physical attacks and surveillance as well as restrictions to their right to freedom of expression, association and assembly. They were heavily affected by the reaction to the mass protests that broke out during the early months of 2011 as well as by the ongoing conflict.
