The International Women’s Media Foundation announced the winners of the 2015 Courage in Journalism Award on Wednesday and The Daily Beast’s own Anna Nemtsova was one of the winners. “Anna Nemtsova has been detained and held at gunpoint for her work in journalism,” the IWMF wrote on its website. “She has covered significant social justice issues and the conflicts in the Caucasus and Ukraine, where she was exposed to indiscriminate artillery fire. Despite significant threats, she continues to unearth abuse of power and is driven by a deep compassion for marginalized communities.” Mwape Kumwenda, a TV reporter in Zambia, and Lourdes Ramirez, a freelancer in Honduras, also won.
