At 18, Linor Abargil was crowned Miss Israel. Six weeks prior to the Miss World contest, Linor was modeling in Italy when an Israeli travel agent brutally raped her. She called her mother, went to the police and to a hospital in Rome.|
After winning the Ms. World contest, the story was reported internationally and Linor became the spokesperson of rape victims worldwide. In 2008, she began speaking out about her experience to girls and women around the world, not only to help herself heal but to help others who have been victimized by rape.
