THE STIEG LARSSON PRIZE to Vilma Núñez De Escorcia
The Stieg Larsson Prize 2011 is awarded to Vilma Núñez De Escorcia for her long struggle for the rights of women and against the unjust abortion laws of Nicaragua. Whatever the government, despite facing strong opposition, she has held on to her ideals and fought to improve everyday life for the women of her country. Her struggle is solidly rooted in the principle of equality and conducted entirely in the Stieg Larsson’s spirit.
