Dear Nadia,
First and foremost, we, the undersigned would like to whole-heartedly congratulate you for the well-deserved Nobel Peace Prize recognition. We also wish to congratulatethe Nobel Prize Committee, for such a wise and timely decision on their part.We are delighted that you should share this award with an extraordinary fellow laureate like Dr. Denis Mukwegefor his and your tireless efforts to end sexual violence as a weapon of war.
We salute your courage in telling your own story of suffering and survival, which represents the stories of not only Kurdish Yezidis, but millions of women around the world. You did not only stand against and expose the war crimesof ISIS and the wide-spread phenomenon of women’s sexual attacks, but you have worked hard to put this in the spotlight on an international level, which has never been done before.
Despite all the bitterness, loss, and agony you suffered at the hands Islamic State, which is beyond imagination, you have remained tall and dignified. You are a symbol and a beacon of hope for countless women around the world in an age where rape, trafficking, violence, and death are an everyday occurrence.
Your exceptional actions will restore the hope to scores of women that their perpetrators can be held accountable for their actions and that governments to act to take these issues on board. You have inspired other women to speak up against such war crimes. You are a role model and a warrior for freedom and human dignity.
Once again we salute and congratulate you. Your ongoing struggle is honorable and we stand proud and in awe of your courage.
Our sincere and sisterly regards to you,
a group of Kurdish women from around the world
