Amal Clooney has taken her seat for the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony 2018.
Joining the Crown Prince and Princess of Norway, Clooney is present for the prestigious award at City Hall in Oslo, Norway.
Amal Clooney has a particular vested interest in the Nobel Peace Prize, being herself a barrister specialising in human rights and international law.
This year she famously spoke out in support of a previous Nobel Peace Prize winner, Iraqi Yazidi-Kurdish human rights activist Nadia Murad.
This year, the Nobel Peace Prize is jointly awarded to Congolese gynecologist, Denis Mukwege, responsible for treating thousands of rape victims, and Iraqi Yazidi Nadia Murad, an activist who survived sexual abuse by ISIS. They are both being recognized for their incredible efforts to end sexual violence, particularly when it’s used as a weapon of war.
Per CNN, Muwege, who started a hospital in the Democratic Republic of Congo, “has treated thousands of rape survivors who suffered traumatic injuries at the hands of warring militias.” Meanwhile, Murad, an Iraqi Yazidi human rights activist, is a survivor of sexual violence who was previously enslaved by Islamic State militants. She’s actually worked with Clooney in trying to make ISIS accountable for genocide of the Yazidi people.
In a statement released via Reuters, upon winning the Nobel Peace Prize, Murad said, “Persecution of minorities must end. Sexual violence against women must never be tolerated.”
For the ceremony today, Amal Clooney is wearing an Oscar De La Renta tweed shirt and skirt co-ord, which she’s paired with a nude suede heel by Jimmy Choo.
Amal has shown her support for Nobel Peace Prize winner and human rights activist Nadia Murad.
