Former Self-Defense Forces member Rina Gonoi, who went public about the sexual harassment she experienced during her service, made it onto the British Broadcasting Corporation's list of the world's 100 influential women of the year released Tuesday.

Gonoi "launched a public campaign calling for accountability, a tough task in a male-dominated society where sexual abuse survivors face a fierce backlash if they speak out," the BBC said in a release, explaining that her case pushed the SDF "to conduct an internal investigation, which led to more than 100 other complaints of harassment."

Among other women in the list are former U.S. first lady Michelle Obama, who advocates for support for girls' education, and Sara Al-Saqqa, a doctor who works at a hospital in Gaza.
