'No woman in the world fights with as much courage for women's rights' New York Times

Mukhtar Mai came to prominence in June 2002, when journalists in Pakistan first learned of her gang rape, punishment for an 'honour crime' allegedly committed by her brother, an 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. Mukhtar Mai pitted herself against the system with extraordinary courage and strength of purpose. Timely and topical, In the Name of Honour is the inspirational true story of a woman who fought and triumphed against exceptional odds.
'It is because of the support of the world that I feel brave' Mukhtar Mai

Although not great literature as such, this book is an interesting story of one remarkable lady. I can't help feeling impressed by her courage - and despaired with knowing what life is like for women many parts of the world. That's why books like this are of utmost importance and recommended reading for everyone.

Thank you for sharing, ApoloniaX!

I devoured the book in a few hours. I understand that, unfortunately, Mukhtar's story is not unique in Pakistan, but the way she reacted to her misfortune is. She's incredibly brave woman, a real fighter and survivor. She's won not only my compassion, but also my deep respect for her decision to dedicate her life to the education of girls in her homeland. I guess that's the way to change women's position in those societies even if it takes a few generations to make it.
