Lina Ben Mhenni – The blogger of the Jasmine revolution

28-year-old Lina Ben Mhenni is a cyberactivist and teaching assistant in Linguistics at the University of Tunis. With her blog "A Tunisian Girl", she became one of the most prominent and courageous bloggers in the Arab world.

Her strong criticism of the regime's repressions and the posting of photos and video footage showing the brutality of security forces during the uprisings made her the "voice of the Jasmine Revolution".
