Wendy Funes

Wendy Funes

Wendy Funes is an investigative journalist who regularly risks her life on reporting about her country, an extremely harsh environment for reporters. Two journalists were murdered in 2017 and her father and friends are among those who have met violent deaths in the country – killings for which no one has ever been brought to justice. Funes meets these challenges with creativity and determination and also writes about violence against women (in Honduras, one woman is killed every 16 hours).
