Exiled

In 1998, Zoilamérica Ortega Murillo publicly accused her adoptive stepfather, Daniel Ortega, of rape. While Ortega, a leader of the Sandinista revolution and president of Nicaragua, remains in power, she lives in exile—isolated from family, estranged from her mother, and considered a traitor by her country. Exiled exposes the profound injustice of having a statute of limitations on reporting sexual assault, but none on political power and impunity.
