    Human rights activist in Zimbabwe

She has been called one of the bravest lawyers in Africa—and for good reason. Mtetwa, who was recognized by the U.S. State Department as one of 10 “international women of courage” last year and who was the subject of the 2013 documentary Rule of Law, has never wavered in her defense of human rights and basic freedoms in her native Zimbabwe. Despite beatings, arrests, and endless threats, she continues to fight for the rule of law.
