Erika Kornélia Szeles, The 15 Years Old Revolutionary Against The Soviets In Budapest, Hungary 1956
March 8 is International Women's Day (US has its equivalent on the 26th of August) which celebrates the struggle for women's rights. Throughout history, many strong women had to rise against the odds and fight for their dreams and passions, equality and solidarity among men. Their bravery contributed to shaping today's world, and has to be remembered.
Czech-born John Sadovy was sent to Budapest by Life magazine and photographed three days of the Hungarian revolution. Slipping past border guards at night, he took graphic photographs that revealed the cruel reality of the Soviet-controlled state for the first time, and earned him the Robert Capa gold medal
