Nadia Murad Wins 2018 Nobel Peace Prize

Activist Nadia Murad, a survivor of the Islamic State–led genocide of the Yazidi people, has been awarded the 2018 Nobel Peace Prize. At 25, she is the second-youngest winner of the Nobel Peace Prize after fellow activist Malala Yousafzai. Of Murad, the Nobel committee has said “She refused to accept the social codes that require women to remain silent and ashamed of the abuses to which they have been subjected. She has shown uncommon courage in recounting her own sufferings and speaking up on behalf of other victims.” On October 16, 2018, Tim Duggan Books will publish the paperback of Nadia’s memoir, The Last Girl: My Story of Captivity, and My Fight Against the Islamic State, with a foreword by Amal Clooney.
