Preliminary research has been published in Britain and the United States, and the U.S. government has allocated $1.67 million for research on the subject.

Tunisia’s 2011 Revolution Symbol, Lina Ben Mhenni Dies Aged 36

Using her name and taking significant risks, Ben Mhenni founded the blog, „A Tunisian Girl,“ to report and speak out against the human rights abuses during the rule of Ben Ali, who banned her blog in 2007.

But in 2011, she started blogging once again and was the first to report on the protests after street vendor Mohamed Bouazizi set himself alight on December 17, 2010, sparking the Arab uprisings.

In English, French, and Arabic, her accounts of the revolution highlighted her engagement against the dictatorship. They were a crucial source of information about the violent crackdown on protesters by security forces, particularly in Sidi Bouzid, the cradle of the revolution, and in other disadvantaged cities in the interior of the country.
