Iva Ikuko Toguri d'Aquino was a native born American woman of Japanese ancestry who made propaganda radio broadcasts from Japan during the Second World War. She was one of several women who were given the name "Tokyo Rose" by American servicemen.

She made the broadcasts under duress and was arrested after the war. Her broadcasts were usually routine and devoid of political or military content. She was convicted at trial in California and sentenced to ten years in prison and fined $10,000. President Gerald Ford granted her a retroactive full pardon.[1]
