In 2014, this week’s ‘At Your Service’ guest, Nobel Peace Prize winner Nadia Murad, was a young woman of 21, when at the height of the ISIS caliphate in Northern Iraq, ISIS surrounded her Yazidi community in the Sinjar region. Her brothers and mother were killed in a mass slaughter. Nadia and her sisters were abducted into sexual slavery. After she managed a remarkable and daring escape, she channeled her trauma to incredible effect, today advocating for survivors of genocide and sexual violence. She tells her story on this week’s episode, joined by her legal counsel, barrister Amal Clooney.
Trigger warning: the material in this episode is powerful and inspiring, but it can also be disturbing and quite hard to hear. If you are sensitive to content about physical and sexual violence, or if you believe that you might find the discussion to be triggering, this episode may not be right for you.
