XY CHELSEA

Idolized by some as a symbol of courage, hated by others for betraying the United States, Bradley passed along more than 750,000 secret documents to WikiLeaks and was sentenced to 35 years in prison. In 2017, days before leaving office, US President Barack Obama commuted the sentence, enabling the former US Army IT specialist — now a woman known as Chelsea Manning — to walk free after seven years and continue her fight for freedom of the press and government transparency.
