Storyline

Israeli beauty queen Linor Abargil was abducted and raped in Milan, Italy two months before being crowned Miss World in 1998. Ten years later, she's ready to talk about it, and to encourage others to speak out. Now a globe-trotting victims' advocate, Linor encourages others to stand against sexual violence by putting an end to their silence. She travels to speak with teens in South Africa, where girls are statistically more likely to be raped than educated. For victims of sexual assault, the journey toward wholeness never ends; still, Linor Abargil, the BRAVE MISS WORLD, continues her unflinching efforts to keep the nightmares at bay.

Could have used better editing
21 February 2018 | by See all my reviews

2/18/18. I admire Linor Abargil for having the inner strength and determination to make something positive out of being raped. She went on to become a lawyer and then brought the rapist to justice and went on to raise awareness of the importance for raped women to speak up. Not too many women have the wherewithal to do something like this (well, maybe Gloria Allred pioneered this approach, and Abargil just expanded it onto a global scale). Better editing would have made the movie more cohesive. Nevertheless, the stories of raped women were so sad to hear.
