Big Think, an educational media website dedicated to broadcasting the advice and insights of the world’s leading thinkers, features Tahirih Justice Center Founder and Executive Director Layli Miller-Muro in one of its newest videos.

Big Think wanted to share Miller-Muro’s perspective because of her “outstanding work to combat human rights abuses against women and girls throughout the world,” according to Big Think Editor Jesse Dashefsky.

More than 3,000 thought leaders from around the world have participated in Big Think interviews, including former U.S. Presidents Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton, former Irish President Mary Robinson, Nobel Laureate Muhammad Yunus, and media mogul Arianna Huffington.

Big Think reaches two million monthly viewers on its website and 90 million viewers on its YouTube page.

BIG THINK FEATURED QUOTE

“The women who come to us are desperate in the moment they come. But they’re incredibly courageous and heroic women. And they can demand justice for themselves. They will rebuild their lives and they will change their communities, their cultures, and their family. But in that moment when they’ve rejected violence and in that moment when they’ve come to us, they need a lawyer and they need a helping hand.”
 
— Layli Miller-Muro, Tahirih Founder and Executive Director
