AN INSPIRING WOMAN: TESS ASPLUND OF SWEDEN

Feeling Rebloggy


"Tess Asplund of Stockholm, Sweden was named one of this year's most inspiring women by the BBC for facing down 300 neo-Nazis marching through a town in central Sweden."

"Asplund, who was protesting the march with fellow anti-racist activists, says that her decision to step in front of hundreds of neo-Nazis was a spontaneous one: "I don’t think I even thought about it really, I just jumped out... I was angry so I stood and did a ‘Nelson Mandela fist." "
