Book Description
Mukhtar Mai came to prominence in June 2002, when journalists in Pakistan first learned of he gang rape, punishment for an ‘honour crime’ allegedly committed by her brother, and offence for which there was never any proof. After the horrific rape, custom dictated that she would kill herself. But Mai defied custom. In an unprecedented act of courage, she took her rapists to court. In this rousing and moving account, Mai describes her experiences and readers get a rare look inside a world of ancient tribal justice, rampant illiteracy, poverty, and economic and sexual bondage.
