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.

Excellent & important
17 July 2016 | by bizbunSee all my reviews

This is a powerful and moving documentary that tackles an important problem in our world. I did not know about Ms Abargil and her incredible mission to help women around the world speak out and find their voice about the horrible epidemic of rape. She is a strong, smart, compassionate woman who has not allowed rape to silence or crush her spirit and who is trying to empower other victims. Her story and the stories others share throughout this film are stomach turning but enlightening. I was not aware of many of the legal issues and problems with bringing rapists to justice that are highlighted here. I think these things are important to know and I hope more viewers will see this now that it is available on Netflix. I am very impressed by her work and this movie, I recommend it to everyone.
