AABANY member and 2010 honoree Peggy Kuo, General Counsel to OATH (Office of Administrative Trials and Hearings) and former Chief Hearing Officer for the New York Stock Exchange, was a prosecutor at the Hague. She prosecuted Serb soldiers who repeatedly raped Muslim women in Bosnia during the war in the former Yugoslovia and helped to create law that defined rape as a crime against humanity. She talks about her involvement in the case in part 1 of the PBS 5-part series “Women, War & Peace." The first part is entitled "I Came to Testify,” and it airs tonight, October 11, on Channel 13.
