One of Newsweek's "150 Fearless Women"

Masha Gessen, Moscow-based investigative journalist who visits today 3/8, was recently named one of "150 Fearless Women" by Newsweek/The Daily Beast.

She's the fourth face down in the leftmost column in a mosaic of faces on the Daily Beast webpage.

The text makes note of the fact that "she's been subjected to robberies, threats and intimidation" and that a number of her fellow journalists have been assassinated.
