Feride Rushiti

Izvršna direktorka, Kosovski rehabilitacioni centar za žrtve nasilja

Međunarodna ženska nagrada za hrabrost je bilo zapravo priznanje za žrtve seksualnog nasilja. Takva nagrada i to od Stejt Dipartmenta… to znači da je svet priznao da na Kosovu postoji 20000 žrtava seksualnog nasilja. Potrebno je da se o žrtvama zna. Potrebno je da se čuje njihov glas.

About Feride

Feride Rushiti was finishing medical training in Albania in the 90’s as war began in Kosovo, resulting in an influx of refugees and a great need for psycho-social support among those escaping trauma. She began volunteering as a student, and after the war subsided, she returned home to Kosovo and established the Kosova Rehabilitation Centre for Torture Victims, through which she has supported hundreds of survivors of war-time sexual violence. In 2018, Rushiti was honored with the International Women of Courage Award for her continued work.
