On April 29, 2023, PEN America posted on Instagram and YouTube this homage to Narges Mohammadi, human rights defender and writer of "White Torture", who has been in and out of prison for the most of the past decade. Mohammadi reposted it.

PEN's intro reads: "Narges Mohammadi is a prominent writer and human rights defender in Iran. Through her writing, such as her book White Torture, she has advocated for the rights of women and political prisoners in Iran. She has been imprisoned for nearly all of 2022 and at risk for over a decade. Mohammadi is one of at least 311 writers and public intellectuals globally who were imprisoned or jailed during 2022. Nearly 813 have faced other severe risks for their expression. Read more from the Freedom To Write Index 2022: https://pen.org/report/freedom-to-write-index-2022."
