Hasina Begum, survivor
Hasina was raped and tortured by the Myanmar military, and her brother and husband were killed in front of her. She fled with her young children to Bangladesh. Hasina is now gaining increasing experience in advocacy, speaking about her experiences and calling for justice. She has travelled to The Hague to attend the International Court of Justice emergency hearings and is part of the women’s survivor group, Shanti Mohila (“Peace Women”), in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh.
“I went to The Hague to tell my story. I wanted to tell the whole world. Sooner or later we will get justice. The whole world has heard us and one day we’ll be able to go back to our country peacefully.”
