A co-winner of this year’s Nobel Peace Prize Nadia Murad has called upon the international community to work together to fight against genocide and sexual violence.

Nadia Murad of Iraq was spoking to media persons in Washington on Monday. This was her first news conference since she was named the winner of the award.

Murad’s campaign to end sexual violence is based on her experience as one of the thousands of girls from the Yazidi minority who were sexually abused by Islamic State militants.

She said winning the prize was a great honor and at the same time it comes with great responsibility. Murad added she wants to share the honor not only with the Yazidi minority but also with all victims of war.

She said the Yazidis are facing an unknown future as many of its women and children remain in captivity by the Islamic State.

Murad said a single prize and a single person cannot achieve the goals and governments around the world should join her in fighting genocide and sexual violence.
