CORRESPONDENT IN BURMA WINS 2008 COURAGE AWARD
One of the few women journalists in military-ruled Burma, Win faces difficult conditions. Plainclothes police or military intelligence agents monitor her movements, watch her house, and often tap her telephone. "Still, she risks her own safety to report," IWMF stated.
Win will receive her award with three other women previously announced at presentations in Los Angeles on 16 October and New York on 21 October.
