Amnesty International’s writing marathons get results: 124 of the 161 imprisoned people that the organization advocated for between 2000 and 2018 were freed. That’s a release rate of more than 75%. The 2018 edition was truly exceptional. It focused on 10 women facing prison sentences, harassment and death threats because they had stood up for human rights in their communities.
