    This is Shima'a Helmy, a courageous young lady who is an activist in the Egyptian Revolution, and one of the social media instigators of that event. Her story, and that of three other Egyptian women involved in the revolution is the topic of an 'in progress' documentary by acclaimed film makers Micah Garen and Marie-Helene Carleton. This shot is from Pop!Tech 2011, where Garen, Carleton, and Helmy talked us through clips from the nascent and still evolving movie.

      Great portrait. Was she posing or did you get this as a candid shot? The dark background is very dramatic a very dramatic frame and it accentuates her confidence and defiance. Well done!
