Nadia Murad: From survivor to Nobel Laureate

Friday, October 5, 2018


Nadia Murad is an Iraqi Yazidi who was captured by ISIS and endured three months as a sex slave at the hands of the militants. After escaping captivity in November 2014, she became an activist for the Yazidi people, campaigning to help put an end to human trafficking and calling on the world to take a tougher line on rape as a weapon of war.  She is the first Iraqi to win the Nobel Peace Prize.
