Their voices are suppressed, prohibited and censored. But world-famous bloggers Yoani Sánchez, Zeng Jinyan and Farnaz Seifi persevere to overcome the myriad difficulties facing them in Cuba, China and Iran in order to continue publishing. They use social media, YouTube and the Internet in general to denounce what’s happening; it’s their way of communicating with the world, of getting round the official information put out by their countries.

Barbara Miller accompanies these women in their struggle to continue telling their millions of followers what is happening in their countries, despite the opposition of the authorities.
