Violence against women can end only when the culprits get punished. ~Mukhtaran Bibi

[She]was gang raped in an "honour" revenge issued by tribal council. She was expected to have committed suicide after this, but took the case to court instead. The perpetrators were charged and arrested, and later acquitted. Nonetheless, she started an organization to empower girls and women in Pakistan.

Thanks, Niranjana.
