6. Digna Ochoa
A fierce and conscientious Mexican human rights activist, Digna Ochoa suffered a cruel fate for fighting injustice. She was found killed in the very same law office where she worked, at the young age of 37.
What’s even worse is that a note was found next to her body – which warned the other human rights activities working with her that they will face the same consequences if she continued doing what they did.
