In an online congratulatory message, the UN Women hailed the Ressa for her tremendous work on fighting for freedom and rights.

‘As a journalist, she has used freedom of expression to expose abuse of power, lies and propaganda despite many challenges, including gender-based discrimination, that has made her a target.’
