‘Tess Asplund: The woman who faced down 300 neo-Nazis’

It was an extraordinary show of defiance. One woman standing alone, her fist raised… 300 uniformed neo-Nazis marching towards her.

The photo of Tess Asplund became an icon of the fight against the far right in Europe. As part of the BBC’s 100 Women season, we travelled to her hometown of Stockholm, as she once again took to the streets to make a stand. Video journalist: Joe Inwood
