North Korean defector Park Yeon-mi has been named one of the BBC's one hundred women of the year.
The British broadcaster nominated Park for her efforts to raise global awareness of the suffering of North Koreans.
The 21-year-old defector came to South Korea five years ago and has since been working to shed light on the North's trafficking of women.
