US first lady Michelle Obama joined secretary of state John Kerry as he praised the determination and courage of "a woman known simply as Nirbhaya - braveheart, fearless" at the State Department presentation ceremony Friday on International Women's Day.

 

"Her bravery inspired millions of women and men to come together with a simple message: No more. No more looking the other way when gender-based violence happens. No more stigma against victims or survivors," said Kerry.

 

"Nirbhaya's fight survives her," he said announcing the award "for inspiring people to work together to end violence against women in India and around the world by displaying immense courage in demanding justice."
