Resumen: The final chapter closes as a coda to the first chapter in the book. If Malala Yousafzai received the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014, four years later, in 2018, it was Nadia Murad¿s turn. This chapter offers a similar approach to the one taken in the first chapter and elsewhere, which is to read the activist¿s texts side by side, and assess the narrative self-representation and self-construction processes in both written and audiovisual media, in traditional and innovative forms. Though there were prior memoirs by women who escaped ISIS recounting the horror of victimization and sexual exploitation, Murad¿s gained worldwide recognition faster perhaps aided by a multiplicity of other factors, namely the ubiquitous deployment of her life-writing texts¿including a recent documentary¿on and offline.
