RAW in WAR (Reach All Women in WAR) annually presents the Anna Politkovskaya Award  to acknowledge the anniversary ofAnna Politkovskaya’s murder on 7th October 2006. The award is presented to a woman human rights defender from a conflict zone that stands up for victims of the conflict, often at great personal risk. Previous award winners include 2011 recipient Razan Zaitouneh, human rights lawyer & journalist (Syria) and Dr. Halima Bashir in 2010 (Darfur/ Sudan).
