Summary
"In June 2002, journalists throughout the world began to hear of the gang rape of a Pakistani woman from the impoverished village of Meerwala. The rape was ordered by a local clan known as the Mastoi and was arranged as punishment for indiscretions allegedly committed by the woman's brother. While certainly not the first account of a female body being negotiated for honor in a family, and (sadly) not the last, journalists and activists were captivated. This time the survivor had chosen to fight back, and in doing so, single-handedly changed the feminist movement in Pakistan."--BOOK JACKET
Summary
A memoir by the Pakistani women's rights leader recounts how she endured court-ordered gang rape for alleged indiscretions committed by her brother, her efforts to run a school for girls, and raise awareness for oppressed women around the world
