    …..Why is her story any more important than any other woman’s who has been raped ?

    • just because this story has been highlighted, doesn’t take away from the seriousness of the countless rapes of other women. It only highlights the issue as a whole, of which she does a wonderful job! Are you trying to suggest that by getting more international media her experience as a whole was somehow “less important”? Some women cant or don’t want to report what has happened to them.
