From Bolivia, Nadia Murad Calls for an End to Violence Against Women


The UN Goodwill Ambassador Nadia Murad, a Nobel Peace Prize laureate of last year, called on women around the world to condemn all forms of Community-Based Violence, speaking at the World Peace Forum in the Bolivian capital of Sucre.

“No matter where we are, women have the right to speak, to condemn what is happening to us as women, it doesn’t matter if violence exists here in Latin America or in the Middle East, we must not remain silent,” said Yazidi human rights activist.

Murad reiterated her intention to continue to defend human rights in the world as well as to strengthen the power of movement by women against sexual violence around the world.

Murad added, the violence suffered by the Yazidi community in Middle East may be different from the type of violence which exists here and what women are experiencing here, but in any case violence should be stopped.

Nadia Murad is a Yazidi activist and Goodwill Ambassador for the Dignity of Survivors of Human Trafficking at the UN Office on Drugs and Crime since 2016, her goal of fighting violence against women, eliminating weapons of war and armed conflict, her great work made to win the Nobel Peace Prize.
