Daw Aung San Suu Kyi "is the daughter of one of the Burma’s most cherished heroes, the martyred General Aung San, who led his country’s fight for independence from Great Britain in the 1940s and was killed for his beliefs in 1947. Suu Kyi has equaled her father’s heroics with her calm but passionate advocacy of freedom and democracy in the country now called Myanmar". [1]
