The Sakharov Prize for two strong and brave women


The 2016 Sakharov Prize went to two strong and brave women, the human rights activists of ethnic Yazidi Nadia Murad and Lamiya Aji Bashar.

The two Yazidi ethnic women were abducted by men in black of the self-styled Caliphate from their village in Iraq and then their life has become a living hell made of torture and abuse of all kinds; women were used as sex slaves by militiamen islmasti and then sold to others as if they were just objects without rights.The yazidi community, and in particular women, are now in the crosshairs of the self-styled Islamic State because yazidis are a United Group and very cohesive, made of strong and independent people who don’t bow to those who want to impose itself on them by force. The fact that yazidis are in majority Christians is more enraged Islamists that they would like to impose on everyone else their violent and misleading interpretation of Islam, but yazidis have never surrendered and even today they continue to fight to keep nitatte and unaltered their culture and traditions that have been handed down from generation to generation for centuries.

Nadia and incredible zest for life and Lamiya demonstrated to denounce everything that the Islamist militias have done to them and to their proud people why such atrocities are not repeated ever again. The Sakharov Prize is an important recognition that could only be entrusted to two sweet women and very strong at the same time as Nadia Lamiya who speak of all the abuses that have undergone and show marked that in present day remain on their bodies as incentive to all women because in the future they want only free and proud women, not slaves.
