Pakistani Human Rights lawyer and activist

Let law to speak for women silenced by oppressive patriarchal structures.

“The first case I worked on was of Nadia* – a 10 year old survivor of gang-rape forced to enter into a compromise with her attackers. Since then I have believed in the power of the law to speak up for women silenced by oppressive patriarchal structures. I will continue my fight for women’s access to justice until no more survivors have to watch their attackers escape retribution.”
