In an award-winning documentary film entitled Brave Miss World, Linor Abargil shares her personal story of struggle and triumph following a brutal attack she endured just weeks before winning the title of Miss World in 1998.
The film produced by Cecilia Peck (daughter of actor Gregory Peck) chronicles Linor's journey toward helping other victims who have endured the same or similar events and the struggles that follow. It is now available for purchase and rental on Amazon Prime. The producers also invite groups and organizers to host a screening to inform the local community of resources by speaking out against rape and violence toward women.
The #IAmBrave campaign is growing strong thanks to followers of the film. On the official Brave Miss World website, you can find helpful action tips to promote the movement including using hashtags #BraveMissWorld or #IAmBrave and #MeToo on social media, by sharing your story and posting photos to help raise awareness.
