Actress Noomi Rapace becomes ECPAT Sweden new Goodwill Ambassador
December 02, 2015
Remember The Girl with a Dragon Tattoo? Internationally acclaimed actress Noomi Rapace is INHOPE's member ECPAT Sweden new Goodwill Ambassador.
She will be raising awareness of child sexual abuse/ exploitation online and offline.
Noomi Rapace portrayed the celebrated character Lisbeth Salander in the original Millenium series. The films all have strong content of sexual violence and abuse, trafficking, as well as child sex offenders consuming child sexual abuse material online. Some of the films’ cinematic force come out of this and Rapace’s character Salander seems to find her rage and strength in response to the serious and systematic abuse that she is subjected to in the films. Something Noomi has reflected on:
“I have thought a lot about the heinousness in child sex abuse and exploitation and realized just how many children become victims every year. I know people who have been subject to sexual exploitation as kids and this has given me perspective and strong will to contribute. ECPAT Sweden is a small but strong organization and I like their systematic way to fight for children’s rights. I am therefore proud to become their next Goodwill Ambassador”, says Noomi Rapace.
