'This essay by author and lawyer Randa Abdel-Fattah, presented in Sydney at the special event to mark The Day of the Imprisoned Writer, is the third in Sydney PEN's 'Free Voices' lecture and essay program, running from 2012 to 2014 using funds granted by Copyright Agency Limited. The program is designed to build public awareness and concern about freedom of expression, and to galvanise a larger, broader demographic of supporters who will challenge human rights abuses and stand up for the freedom to write and read. It offers new and established writers the opportu - nity to raise or utilise their profile and express their commitment to freedom of expression in a contemporary context.' (8)
