For us, the American computer professional who worked previously as a contractor for the National Security Agency (NSA), Edward Snowden, is a superhero.
Snowden made headlines around the world in 2013, after he copied and leaked classified information from the NSA belonging to the United States government.

Over the past couple of years, the international media has been awash with stories from India of sexual violence against women — despite implementation of new laws and a great deal of soul searching by politicians, lawyers and women’s rights activists.
According to the country’s National Crime Records Bureau, 36,735 rapes, 4,234 attempts to rape, and 132,939 sexual offences were recorded in 2014 (although the numbers don’t give the full picture, since many sexual assaults go unreported). To make matters worse, 72% percent of accused rapists were acquitted, while more than 85% of perverts who attempted to rape got away with it.
