“I want to be the last girl in the world with a story like mine,” in her book The Last Girl: My Story of Captivity, and My Fight against the Islamic State writes Nadia Murad, a 23-year-old Yezidi, who survived genocide and sexual slavery committed by ISIS against the Yezidi in northern Iraq.

"How did they rape you? How.." This is necessary, of course it's necessary, but...Some things I've been asked, "What do you want to do?" Some ask,"You have become famous, what does that mean to you?" These kind of questions are not the ones to ask. The things I want to be asked are: "What is the fate of those girls?", "How young are the girls who are going through this pain?", "What is the situation of the refugees who I visit in the camps?", "What is the situation of my people in camps in Kurdistan and Sinjar Mountain?", "What must be done so Yazidis can have their rights?", "What must be done so a woman will not be a victim of war?". These are the kind of things that I want to be asked more often.
